Cricket Valley Energy Center’s state-of-the-art, low-impact design is a highly-efficient, natural gas-fired facility designed to be among the cleanest energy producers in New York. It will generate electricity for nearly one million homes.

The facility is expected to create approximately 800 craft jobs and, once complete, up to 30 full-time engineering, operations, management, and administrative positions. Construction is expected to start in mid-2016.

“We are very pleased to announce our partnership with Bechtel,” said Robert De Meyere, project manager for Cricket Valley Energy LLC.

“We are confident that the expertise and experience Bechtel brings to our project will help achieve our goal to make Cricket Valley Energy a trusted resource in the region’s energy supply, revitalize a dormant industrial site, and create jobs and tax revenue for the Town of Dover and the region.”

Bechtel will be responsible for the engineering, procurement, and construction of the generating facility, which will use three General Electric natural gas turbines, each with a heat recovery steam generator and steam turbine generator.

Bechtel partnered with Cricket Valley Energy to complete the development of the project.
