CH2M Hill selects Agility Project Logistics for Darling Downs Power Station Project New plant will power equivalent of 400,000 homes
CH2M Hill Brisbane has awarded Agility Project Logistics a global Project Logistics contract for the new 630 megawatt Darling Downs Power Station Project to be located in Darling Downs Region of Queensland, Australia.
CH2M Hill Atlanta and Brisbane offices will undertake the engineering, procurement, and construction activities on the US$ 750 million gas fired power station for Origin Energy. GE will supply three Frame 9E gas turbines, boilers and steam turbine and CH2M Hill will supply balance of the equipment. Agility Project Logistics is part of Agility, a US$6 billion leading global logistics provider with more than 32,000 employees, and over 550 offices in 100 countries around the world. The Darling Downs power station will be the biggest combined cycle power station in Australia and operates on coal seam methane gas. It will emit about half the greenhouse gas emissions of a coal-fired power station using current technology. This will save 2.5 million tonnes of greenhouse gases a year Co equivalent to removing 600,000 cars annually from the roads. C[pounds sterling]This is a great global success for our Project Logistics team and we are extremely pleased to secure this first contract with CH2M Hill in Australia,C[yen] said John Beattie, Agility Project LogisticsCO Australasian General Manager
Full commercial operation is expected in the first quarter of 2010 and will produce enough power to supply the equivalent of 400,000 Queensland homes. Being air cooled, the power station will use less than three per cent of the cooling water used by a conventional coal-fired power station.
Agility Project Logistics will have responsibility for all global air, ocean and inland transportation and related logistics services from the delivery points, primarily in Asia, Europe, and the US, through to the safe arrival at the job site. Shipments commenced in May 2008. A[umlaut] 2008 Al Bawaba (www.albawaba.com)
