Basin Electric – Lonesome Creek Station LM6000 Project

Client: Basin Electric Power Cooperative

Location: Watford City, North Dakota

Project: LM6000 Gas Turbine Installation

Scope: AZCO is the General Contractor for all phases of construction for the installation of (2) GE LM6000 Gas Turbines at the natural gas-based peaking plant, Lonesome Creek Station, as part of Basin Electric's expansion plan to answer the demand for more power and reliable service to the Williston Basin. AZCO will self-perform all of the mechanical work and subcontract the civil/site work, concrete, and electrical to bring the plant's total generation capacity to 270MW.

Work includes the procurement and installation of 12,000 linear feet of underground pipe, 3,300 linear feet of above-ground piping as well as all valves and fittings. AZCO will also set, align, and grout the GE turbines for each unit, install the emissions control modules, exhaust, and stack, inlet filters, interconnecting pipe for the turbines as well as for the ammonia injection grid, and set all of the balance of plant equipment and miscellaneous platforms.
