Davey said the plant would not create any carbon emissions, and would not use any water to generate electricity. The estimated cost of the project is $750 million.
At the June 22 meeting, Davey introduced several others involved in the project: his associate, Lee Tanner; Richard Reese of Hensel Phelps Construction; and Adrian Smith, technical director/project management from Faithful Gould.
Hensel Phelps, an internationally recognized company based in Greeley, Colo., will be the prime contractor on the project. The structures they have built include the American embassy in Berlin, Germany and the South Terminal at Miami International Airport. They also built two structures at the University of Arizona in Tucson: the Medical Research Building and the chemistry building expansion.
Faithful Gould will be providing project management services. They are an internationally recognized management and consulting firm. They have worked on the World Trade Center redevelopment project in New York and provided cost estimating services for the Phoenix water department for their wastewater infrastructure program.
