Providing a full EPC wrap, project administration/management and full project installation, Fagen, Inc. joined forces with Siemens Environmental Systems & Services, which will be the primary technology partner for the project, and SEGA Inc., which will provide the overall engineering and integration of the Siemens system into the plant.
Unit No. 8 at the Lon D.
