One million additional homes in New York state will receive low-carbon, affordable, safe and reliable power from the newly completed Cricket Valley Energy Center, which was built by Bechtel. The 1,100-megawatt combined-cycle plant in Dover in New York will use advanced emissions -control technology to ensure it operates as one of the most efficient power-generation facilities in the US. The Cricket Valley Energy Center uses a highly efficient, environmentally responsible process of converting clean-burning natural gas to electricity. The station uses three combustion turbines, each paired with a heat recovery steam generator and steam turbine generator. Unlike older combined-cycle power plants, the facility is equipped with state-of-the-art emission-control technology that significantly reduces emissions.

Bechtel began construction at Cricket Valley Energy Center in July 2017. The combustion turbines, heat recovery steam generators, steam turbines, and other ancillary equipment for the plant was supplied by General Electric.
