Wood has secured a contract from Siemens to install a new Siemens HL-class gas turbine at a power generating station in North Carolina.

The award will see Wood mobilise a team of around 400 people to the project site to deliver this notable construction project for a period of approximately 11 months.

Andrew Stewart, Wood’s Asset Solutions Americas CEO, said: “This contract is a fantastic demonstration of Wood’s ability to deliver a breadth of services to meet the needs of various customers in the power and process industries. This power plant is serving the growing demand for electricity, and the construction of a new combustion turbine station is part of a plant expansion programme.”

Stewart added: “Siemens is driving the test of new, more efficient HL-class gas turbine technology at the station and we are privileged to be part of this important and strategic program to add 400 megawatts of capacity to the plant’s existing 1200 megawatts.”
