Kokosing Industrial, Inc. was chosen by Siemens Energy, Inc. as their General Contractor for the construction of the Lordstown Energy Center – a new 940 megawatt natural gas-fired combined cycle power plant (CCPP) to be built in Lordstown, Ohio.
Kokosing Industrial will provide general construction services under a contract with Siemens Energy, Inc. As the EPC Contractor, Siemens will deliver a complete power plant solution for the developer, Clean Energy Future-Lordstown, LLC.
“In just 26 months, a 14-acre site will be completely transformed into a fully-functional combined cycle power plant. A project of this magnitude requires significant construction resources. In addition to our direct hiring of the local union trades, we also intend to engage local businesses in this exciting project,” said Ken Gonya, Assistant Vice President of Kokosing Industrial.
Lordstown Energy Center will feature the record-breaking H-class Flex-Plant technology designed for fast, flexible operation to support renewable integration. The project scope includes two gas turbines, one steam turbine and three generators. The facility will be capable of supplying power for approximately 800,000 households.
“We are pleased that Siemens Energy, Inc. has chosen Kokosing Industrial to provide their construction services on this important project. In the late 90s, a construction boom included development of many new combined cycle plants. Kokosing played an important role in the construction of a half dozen plants built during that timeframe. We are well positioned and prepared for the resurgence of plants like the Lordstown Energy Center in our region,” said Tom Muraski, Sr. Vice President of Kokosing Industrial.
