- Energy services giant Wood has secured a construction contract from Siemens to install a new Siemens HL-class gas turbine at a 1,200MW power plant in North Carolina, adding a further 400MW of capacity.

"This power plant is serving the growing demand for electricity, and the construction of a new combustion turbine station is part of a plant expansion programme," said Andrew Stewart, Wood's Asset Solutions Americas CEO.

A team of around 400 people from Wood would work on the project site for a period of some 11 months.
