Auld & White Begins Work for JEA

Jacksonville, Fla., August 6, 2010Auld & White Constructors has begun work at the new Greenland Energy Center for the Jacksonville Electric Authority (JEA).  Work will include installation of a guard house, security wall, sight lighting, and final paving.

JEA broke ground on the new Greenland Energy Center (GEC) in 2009, a clean, efficient technology generating plant similar to the Brandy Branch Generating Station. GEC is being built just south and west of the State road 9A/proposed 9B corridor. Upon completion, Greenland Energy Center will enhance electric system generation and reliability. The initial phase of GEC will be the construction of two natural gas-fired simple cycle combustion turbine units (CT1 and CT2) that are proposed to be operational in 2011.
