STONE & WEBSTER WINS TEXAS CLEAN AIR WORK

 DALLAS, April 12 /PRNewswire/ -- TU Electric and Stone & Webster Engineering Corporation have entered into an agreement to help TU Electric comply with the anticipated Dallas-Fort Worth Ozone Nonattainment NOx RACT (Reasonable Achievable Control Technology) Rules, which become effective May 1995 under the federal Clean Air Act.
 Under the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments, Title 1, the DFW ozone nonattainment zone was classified a "Moderate" zone. As such, the DFW zone, comprised of Collin, Denton, Dallas, and Tarrant counties, must achieve ozone attainment by 1996. The Texas Air Control Board is currently in the process of developing specific NOx RACT Rules to comply with the federal act.
 TU Electric is preparing to comply by entering into this multi- service agreement with Stone & Webster to evaluate NOx control options and, as required by final regulations, by controlling NOx emissions from its 25 gas/oil-fired generating units in the DFW zone.
 Stone & Webster has been selected to provide project management, design and engineering services during the initial study phase of the project. Stone & Webster will determine costs and unit performance changes resulting from installation of NOx control technologies on each of the 25 affected generating units. From these costs and unit performance changes, TU Electric will select the appropriate unit modifications for compliance with the final regulations. Under the contract provisions, Stone & Webster will provide project management, design, engineering, procurement, construction oversight, and operations support services to install these modifications.
 "The team of Stone & Webster and TU Electric brings years of experience and expertise together to resolve the highly complex and technical issues associated with electric generating unit NOx reduction," said Larry Nace, TU Electric vice president, Fossil Production Engineering and Support, in announcing the contract.
 Stone & Webster Engineering Corporation is an international, multidisciplinary engineering and construction organization specializing in technologically advanced projects in environmental restoration, power generation, refining and petrochemical work, transportation and industrial areas. Stone & Webster Engineering Corporation is a subsidiary of Stone & Webster, Incorporated of New York City.
 TU Electric provides electric service to about 5.5 million people in more than 370 towns and cities in west, north, central, and east Texas.
