AECOM (NYSE: ACM) said on Sept. 29 that it has been selected for the project with Arizona Public Service (APS) to engineer, procure and construct (EPC) selective catalytic reduction (SCR) retrofits and related balance of plant equipment at the coal-fired Four Corners Station near Farmington, N.M.
AECOM said in the brief announcement that it will install SCR technology on Four Corners Units 4 and 5. The project’s value was included in AECOM’s ending backlog for the third quarter.
“AECOM’s leading power and environmental capabilities continue to create strong opportunities for growth,’’ said Michael S. Burke, AECOM chairman and chief executive officer. “AECOM has significant experience at the Four Corners Generating Station, and we are pleased to once again support this important client with EPC services that advance its environmental objectives.’’
AECOM is a premier, fully integrated professional and technical services firm positioned to design, build, finance and operate infrastructure assets around the world for public- and private-sector clients. AECOM companies, including URS Corp. and Hunt Construction Group, had revenue of approximately $19 billion during the 12 months ended June 30, 2015.
The Four Corners plant, which is co-owned by several parties and operated by APS, consisted of five coal-fired units with a combined capacity of 2,070 MW. Units 1, 2, and 3 are owned by APS, and were shut down effective Dec. 30, 2013, due to regional haze restrictions. Units 4 and 5 are getting SCRs for regional haze compliance and will stay in operation over the long term.
