Elk Station Units 2 & 3
Due in large part to successful completion of Elk Station Unit 1, a team comprising Kiewit and TIC – The Industrial Company was asked to return to Abernathy, Texas, to construct Elk Station
Units 2 and 3 for Golden Spread Electric Cooperative.
The project is located adjacent to the existing Antelope Station, Elk Station Unit 1, Elk Switchyard and the Sharyland switchyard transmission line. Project scope includes engineering, procurement, construction and start up of two 190-megawatt simple-cycle gas combustion turbine electrical generation facilities. The power plant will use two General Electric 7FA.05 combustion turbine generators.
On May 18, 2015, the Elk Station team mobilized to site — the project is expected to last one year with an estimated 426,000 manhours at completion.
