Jackson Walker Represents Exelon in Texas Power Generation Projects
Jackson Walker L.L.P. is representing Exelon Generation in connection with its project to build two combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT) units in Texas. Each unit will have approximately 1,000 MW of capacity and will utilize new General Electric technology that will make these units among the cleanest, most efficient CCGTs in the state and the nation. Jackson Walker recently represented Exelon Generation in the successful completion of the Engineering, Procurement and Construction Contracts for both units and the procurement contracts for the GE combustion turbines, the Alstom Heat Recovery Steam Generators, and other major equipment.
The units are being built on existing Exelon sites: one at the Colorado Bend Generating Station, currently a 498 MW natural gas plant in Wharton County, Texas; and the other at the 704 MW Wolf Hollow natural gas plant in Granbury, Texas. Construction is expected to begin in 2015 with commercial operation targeted for 2017.
