By on December 20, 2012

Canada’s SNC-Lavalin along with Sweden’s Skanska have received contracts from Hess to build a gas-fired combined cycle power plant in northern New Jersey.

The 655-megawatt Newark Energy Center will use GE combustion gas turbines, the Canadian engineering firm said in a statement. SNC-Lavalin will provide engineering, procurement, start-up and commissioning services. Skanska will be responsible for construction and site management.

The new US$750 million plant will begin producing power in 2015.
