Bechtel to Start Texas Power Plant Construction
Bechtel will begin construction later this year on a new US$650 million natural-gas fired plant in South Texas.
La Paloma Power Plant will have an installed capacity of 700 megawatts and be located east of Harlingen on an 80-acre site, according to a statement from developer Coronado Power Ventures.
“Harlingen project has received its permits and is moving forward on construction,” Kathleen Smith, Coronado’s managing partner, said.
The Harlingen Economic Development Corporation said the project will create between 650 and 800 high paying jobs. “Welders, pipefitters, electricians, EE’s and more – get ready. They’ll be hiring about 600 people to build the plant starting in about 6 months!” Harlingen posted on its Facebook page.
Construction is expected to take about 2.5 years.
