Bechtel completes natural-gas power plant in Loudoun County
Bechtel said Thursday it has completed the Stonewall Energy Facility, a natural gas-fired power plant in Loudoun County. The plant, run by Dallas-based Panda Power Funds, has created 27 jobs.
Bechtel is a San Francisco-based engineering, construction, and project management company, which has offices in Reston. According to Bechtel, more than 700 jobs were created during the construction of the facility. The 778-megawatt combined-cycle generating station will supply electricity to up to 778,000 homes.
This is the fourth facility that Bechtel has built for Panda Power Funds. Siemens also worked on the project, providing components such as turbines, generators, and boilers.
The new facility uses advanced emissions-control technology and is cooled with treated wastewater.
