Power Plant Construction

The world looks to Skanska to execute projects of unmatched size and complexity.  

The energy industry looks to Skanska to construct complex power generating facilities of all sizes. Skanska’s energy sector expertise runs deep from high output baseload power generation facilities to simple cycle peaking facilities to Combined Heat and Power (CHP) and cogeneration plants to plant repowering and diesel generator installations.  Skanska has constructed solid fuel and cleaner natural gas-fired energy facilities as well as sustainable hydroelectric plants and, in many cases, we maintain the facilities we build.  Skanska’s power experience also includes outages and retrofits at existing power plant sites to ensure the production of cleaner and more reliable energy.
