Wood Group GTS has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract valued at approximately $875 million from Dorad Energy to build an 800-megawatt power plant in Israel. The natural-gas fired Dorad Power Plant is expected to be online within 36 months and when completed will represent approximately eight per cent of Israel’s total installed power generation capacity.

Wood Group GTS has full turnkey responsibility for the combined-cycle plant, from design, procurement and construction through to commissioning and handover. The combined-cycle power plant will utilize 12 natural gas-fired turbines connected to a heat-recovery steam generator that will provide steam to run two steam turbines. This combined cycle gas turbine technology will offer significantly improved emissions as compared to coal-fired technology.

“The landmark Dorad Power Plant will be one of the first major operational independent power producers following Israel’s deregulation of electricity markets,” stated Mark Papworth, CEO, Wood Group GTS. “As the global economy recovers and an increase in power generation is required, we expect a robust market opportunity for additional gas-fired power generation capacity. We intend to continue to develop our EPC activities, supporting our clients’ new power plant requirements both in the Americas and the Eastern hemisphere.”
