Duke Power underway

Duke Power Company, a business unit of Duke Energy, is in full swing on construction of the Mill Creek Combustion Turbine Station near Blacksburg, South Carolina. Construction of the 640 mega-watt (MW) station began earlier this year and its first units are expected to start commercial operation during the summer of 2003.
Duke/Fluor Daniel, an affiliate of Duke Energy, provided plant design work, and is constructing the plant. The company expects to employ 400 people at the height of construction. The Mill Creek Station will consist of eight 80MW General Electric (GE) natural gas and oil fired combustion turbine generator sets and will supply power to the grid during times of peak usage. This $300 million plant will be the newest addition to the Duke Power fleet of generating stations.
