EMCOR Group, Inc. Subsidiary Awarded Contracts For Installation Of Electrical Systems At Riverside Energy Resource Center

NORWALK, CONNECTICUT, March 11, 2010 - EMCOR Group, Inc. (NYSE: EME), a Fortune 500® leader in mechanical and electrical construction, energy infrastructure and facilities services for a diverse range of businesses announced that, as previously reported during its February 2010, Fourth Quarter '09 Earnings Call, its Dynalectric San Diego and Dynalectric Los Angeles subsidiaries have been awarded contracts for the installation of electrical systems for the Riverside Energy Resource Center in Riverside, California.

 

Dynalectric San Diego and Dynalectric Los Angeles will be responsible for the installation, start-up and commissioning of all the electrical systems at the Riverside Energy Resource Center (RERC), built to address Riverside's growing demand for electricity. In 2004, the City of Riverside's Public Utilities Department constructed RERC Units 1 and 2, a 96-megawatt power generating plant. This new project will add two additional units (3 and 4), an additional 96-megawatts, to be constructed at the RERC site, and of the same size and configuration as Units 1 and 2. The power plant will consist of two gas turbine generators operating with an associated switchyard.

 

In addition to the traditional electrical scope of work, Dynalectric San Diego and Dynalectric Los Angeles will also be responsible for the installation of all systems, including the plant controls systems, as well as the installation of a lightning protection system, fire alarm system, security system, and tele/data and fiber optics systems. The project is scheduled for completion in October 2010.

 

"We and Dynalectric Los Angeles are very honored and excited to be part of this state-of-the-art project," said Philip Petersen, President and CEO of Dynalectric San Diego. "Being part of the community, we know the importance of the Riverside Energy Recourse Center Project; no better way to support the exacting and rigid specifications required than through the teaming of two EMCOR companies."
