Work moves ahead at New York State combined cycle

Published on: 

E-J Electric Installation Co. (E-J Electric) is partnering with Skanska, Burns & McDonnell and ECCO III to provide design-assist services for the installation of the fast track 680MW Power Plant at the new CPV Valley Energy Center in Middletown, New York.

The CPV Valley Energy Center is a 680MW natural gas-fueled combined cycle electric generation facility in upstate New York. The facility was environmentally conscientiously designed and features highly-efficient turbine technology in a "combined-cycle" configuration utilizing clean and natural gas. The Energy Center will power enough electricity to power more than 650,000 homes, improving New York's environmental profile and reducing the region's dependency on older and less efficient generators.


The scope of services includes the installation of an underground duct bank, grounding, above ground cable tray, isophase bus duct, modular power control building and MV cables and terminations. The environmentally-responsible design of the facility enables it to be one of the cleanest conventional electric generating projects in the world.
