ODEC Takes Another Step in Wildcat Point Project

As scheduled, on January 31, 2014 ODEC received bids from the selected Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractors. The EPC contractor will be the “General Contractor” for the Wildcat Point Project. It will be his responsibility to engineer and design the power station around and using the major equipment (gas turbines, steam turbine, associated generators, boilers and transformers) that ODEC has already purchased. The EPC contractor will also be responsible for procuring all of the remaining equipment and structures to make the plant fully functional, along with constructing the facility and assisting with the initial start-up. This is a major portion and a crucial part of the Project that will require careful review and analysis prior to awarding a contract. It is anticipated that award can be made by summer of 2014. Pending timely receipt of permits, construction is anticipated to begin late 2014 or early 2015.
