Wood Group GTS has received an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract, valued at approximately $152m, from GWF Energy to construct and commission the conversion of the Tracy Peaker Plant in Tracy, California.
GWF is converting the Tracy Peaker project to a combined cycle facility in support of a new power purchase agreement with Pacific Gas & Electric Company. The project will convert the existing facility, which consists of two General Electric Frame 7EA gas turbine generators, to combined cycle operation through the turnkey design and installation of two heat recovery steam generators and a single steam turbine generator, an air-cooled condenser, and related balance of plant equipment. Upon completion, the converted 336MW Tracy Combined Cycle Plant will offer additional highly efficient and flexible electric generating capacity for PG&E and its customers.
Mark Papworth, CEO for Wood Group GTS, said: “We are very pleased to have been chosen as the EPC contractor for the GWF Tracy project. We are proud to have GWF as a long-standing Wood Group GTS customer in California, and this important project builds on that strong relationship.”
