Parsons Brinckerhoff has been contracted by Horizon Power to construct a 20 megawatt gas turbine power plant in Karratha.
The power project is scheduled to be commissioned for the summer 2013/2014 period, with site works already underway.
“The installation of this additional generation at Karratha is a critical project and will benefit from this combined global expertise,” Parsons Brinckerhoff director for Asia-Pacific Paul Turney said.
“We are dedicated to a successful project outcome. This is a platform for future delivery of larger EPC power projects in the region.”
Horizon power is investing $43.5 million over two years to increase power generation capacity in the Pilbara.
