Haskell Corp. in Bellingham announced it has won a significant building contract to construct a portion of a power plant in south-central Alaska.
Haskell signed a contract valued at $102.8 million with Matanuska Electric Association to build the “power block” portion of the Eklutna Generation Station, including housing for the plant’s engines and generators, along with related infrastructure, according to a press release.
When completed—construction is expected to take about 18 months—the plant will produce up to 170 megawatts of power.
Haskell, which has been in business since 1890, has done construction work in Alaska for more than six decades. The company recently worked on large-scale projects for Eielson Air Force Base in Fairbanks, Alaska, and the Golden Valley Electric Association’s North Pole plant.
