OPPD Board Moves Forward on New Coal Plant

LCG, April 15, 2005--The Omaha Public Power District Board of Directors has authorized management to proceed toward executing a contract with the Nebraska City Power Partners that will lead to the construction of a 663-MW, coal-fired power plant located near Nebraska City. Nebraska City Power Partners is a consortium of contractors that includes Black & Veatch, Gilbert Industrial Corporation, and Zachary Construction of San Antonio, Texas.

The site, Nebraska City Station, already has one coal-fired unit generating power and has the potential for a total of four units. Construction is expected to begin in September, and commercial operations are to commence in 2009. The new unit will burn low-sulfur coal and will include sophisticated emission-control systems.

Omaha Public Power District (OPPD) will use 50% of the power from the new coal unit to serve the electricity demands of its customers. The remainder of the plant output will be used by seven other public power entities participating in the unit.

The new coal plant is one of many coal projects planned across North America that are moving forward towards commercial operation.
