Newark Energy Center

  • Newark Energy Center

As EPC Contractor for the project with a joint venture design partner, Skanska built the new 2x1 natural gas-fired combined cycle facility with a nameplate capacity of 655 MW.  The plant utilizes two General Electric 7FA.05 combustion turbines, two HRSGs, and one GE D11 steam turbine.   Newark Energy Center went into operation in 2015 making the GE machines some of the first of their kind to achieve commercial operation.  The plant generates power for more than 700,000 homes in and around the city of Newark, New Jersey.
