to announce that it has been awarded the engineering, balance of plant
procurement, and construction (EPC) contract for the St. Charles Energy
Center Project in Maryland by Competitive Power Ventures, Inc. ("CPV"),

asset management company. CPV has projects with more than 5,000 MWs of
capacity currently in development across North America, and has both
natural gas and wind-power generation facilities under management.
The 725-MW CPV St. Charles Project will be designed and constructed at a
30,75 hectares greenfield site approximately 4 km south of the
community of St. Charles, Maryland. The project consists of two
owner-furnished F-class gas turbines exhausting into two moderately
duct-fired, triple-pressure reheat heat recovery steam generators
(HRSGs). The cooling system utilizes reclaimed water from the
Mattawoman Wastewater Treatment Plant.
