Lake Charles Power Station
Client: CMC - Dallas
Location: West Lake, Louisiana, USA
Completion Date: 2020
Located 48km from New Orleans, Louisiana, the Lake Charles Power station owned and run by Entergy Corp is expected to supply 590,000 homes with 980 megawatt of power. This is a natural gas-fired, combined-cycle power plant.
Project Details: Entergy Louisiana, a subsidiary of Entergy Corporation, is developing the project. The Louisiana Public Service Commission approved the construction of the $872m power station in June 2017. The ground-breaking ceremony for the project took place in January 2018, while commercial operations are expected to begin by June 2020. The combined-cycle gas turbine project is expected to be one of the cleanest and most efficient fossil fuel-fired plants developed by Entergy Louisiana. It will produce power sufficient for approximately 675,000 Louisiana homes. The project will use more than 23,000yd³ of concrete, and approximately 948t of structured steel during construction.
Scope of Work: DBM Vircon provided 3D rebar modeling services for various structures on this development. DBM Vircon has also worked on several other similar infrastructure projects including Montgomery County Power Station (Texas), St. Charles Power Station (Louisiana), and Delta Energy Park (Michigan).
