Gemma Power Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of Argan, has secured a contract to build 200MW dual-fuel simple cycle power plant in Medway, Massachusetts, US.

Work will be carried out under a $100m turnkey engineering, procurement and construction contract with Exelon West Medway, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Exelon Generation.

The company has received Limited Notice to Proceed (LNTP) to commence activities on the project while the full notice to proceed (FNTP) is dependent on regulatory approval from Massachusetts.

Gemma Power Systems CEO William Griffin said: "We look forward to this new partnership, adding to our LMS100 resume and demonstrating the reputation we have built over the past 18 years."

Planned to be built on a 70-acre site adjacent to Exelon’s existing 173MW Medway Generating Station, the new power plant will feature two 100MW General Electric LMS100 combustion turbine generators.

The facility is scheduled to be commissioned in the second quarter of 2018.
