To keep pace with Maryland’s electricity-driven lifestyle, Competitive Power Ventures (CPV) is building a 725 megawatt natural gas-fired combined cycle power plant in Waldorf, Maryland. The new facility will generate enough electricity to power more than 650,000 homes and uses state-of-the-art technology to produce electricity efficiently and cleanly to help meet the region’s demand for energy.
When completed, CPV St. Charles will be one of the cleanest natural gas facilities ever built in Maryland and Washington, DC area, using clean natural gas and helping reduce dependency on older coal-burning power plants which currently supply a majority of the region’s power.
Ferguson Trenching Co., Inc. was subcontracted by CPV to design and construct the required natural gas infrastructure to the power plant site. Our crews installed over 6,400 linear feet of 16”, ½” wall, X-52, OHP steel pipe and a meter and regulator station on a 3.5 acre site, adjacent to Dominion Transmission’s pipelines. Despite a demanding schedule, Ferguson Trenching Co., Inc. finished the project ahead of schedule.
