Construction workers beginning to arrive

coloradocityclipartMitchell County Board of Economic Development Manager Sue Young gave an update on the desalination plant and power plant projects ongoing in the county.
Commissioners recently sought bids for a general contractor for the construction of the desalination plant. Only one bid was received. The bid from Thomas Hicks Construction out of Abilene was rejected because it did not meet specifications.
Since no general contractor was hired to oversee construction, the county will go out for separate bids for each part of the construction. Young said that progress is being made on the project, but most of the progress is occurring underground.
“We will start seeing things very soon,” she said Monday. Once the facility is ready to conduct the desalination process, samples will have to be sent in to the state for approval.
Construction of the FGE Power, LLC, power plant is bringing workers to the area. Housing details are “being worked out” for 100 workers who are due to arrive in the area very soon. Some of the construction crews will be living in RVs in local RV parks.
Young said that Lavalin, the company in charge of constructing the plant is mobilizing and will also be bringing more people to the county in the next few weeks.
The permitting process with the Environmental Protection Agency is complete, and permits are expected to be in hand on April 19th, according to Young.
FGE Power, LLC is working with all associated agencies and companies to set a date for an official groundbreaking. While the exact date is unsure, Young said she expects it to be held before Memorial Day at the end of May.
