BATON ROUGE, La., Mar 29, 2005 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- The Shaw Group Inc. (NYSE: SGR) today announced that its
Shaw EMCON/OWT unit, which specializes in solid waste management
solutions, has successfully completed a 1.6-MW landfill
gas-to-electricity (LFGTE) turnkey development project at the Western
Regional Landfill in Lincoln, California, for Energy 2001, Inc.
Using its patented Triton Powerpak(TM) engine generator
technology, Shaw fabricated the two Triton Powerpak units and
designed, permitted, and constructed the facility, and holds a 10-year
contract to operate the LFGTE plant. Power generated is being sold to
the City of Roseville, California through an agreement with the
Northern California Power Authority. Facility components were designed
in a modular fashion to allow maximum operational flexibility and to
allow that the facility can be expanded, depending on LFG availability
and overall site development requirements.
J. M. Bernhard, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Shaw,
said, "This is a very important project and one that cements our role
as an innovative provider of landfill gas to electricity solutions.
Driven by renewable resource regulations and goals, we expect this
