HOLLYWOOD, Fla., March 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NV5 Global, Inc. (the “Company” or “NV5”) (Nasdaq:NVEE), a provider of professional and technical engineering and consulting solutions, announced today that it was awarded dual contracts to provide Delegate Chief Building Official (DCBO) services on behalf of the California Energy Commission (Energy Commission) for the first construction phase of two combined cycle power plants owned and operated by The AES Corporation. The contracts were won by NV5’s Energy Group with a combined value of approximately $11 million over three years.
The Alamitos Energy Center (AEC) and the Huntington Beach Energy Project (HBEP), both located in Southern California, will generate an estimated total of 1,040 MW and 844 MW, respectively, once completed.
NV5 has been providing DCBO services for the demolition and abatement of the existing Huntington Beach Generating Station over the last year. Once this process is finished, construction of the upgraded HBEP will begin. HBEP construction activities are expected to continue through the year 2025 and AEC construction activities are projected to last 56 months. NV5 will be awarded additional fees for all subsequent phases of the projects.
Dickerson Wright, PE, Chairman and CEO of NV5, said, “The energy services practice our team has built, particularly with regard to DCBO services, addresses the needs of a prestigious market with very high barriers to entry, and we are pleased to see it thriving and growing.”
Kevin Wedman, CBO, Senior Vice President of Energy at NV5, explained, “As DCBO for the Energy Commission, our team works with the Project Owner to verify health and life safety and that each Project is designed, constructed, and operated in conformity with the Energy Commission’s decisions, applicable California Building Standards Codes, applicable local building codes, and other applicable laws, ordinances, regulations, and standards (LORS).”
“Due to their proximity to protected wetlands and Pacific Ocean beaches, both power plants are high-profile projects,” said Shannon Hunter, NV5 Project Manager. “We are looking forward to continuing to work with our client to provide the best service possible.”
