Item 1.01.  Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

Duke Energy Carolinas, LLC (“DE Carolinas”) entered into an engineering, construction and commissioning services agreement, effective May 5, 2008, with Shaw North Carolina, Inc. (“Shaw”) for the construction of a new nominally-rated 620MW combustion turbine, combined cycle natural-gas fired electric generation station (the “Station”) to be located along the Yadkin River at DE Carolinas’ existing Buck steam station generating site in Rowan County, North Carolina.  If approved by the North Carolina Utilities Commission, the Station will provide intermediate generating capacity to the Carolinas system with plans to begin commercial operations of the Station in simple cycle mode by summer of 2010 and combined cycle mode by summer of 2011.  The Station will consist of (a) two General Electric 7FA combustion turbines, (b) two natural circulation, duct fired heat recovery steam generators, (c) one General Electric reheat condensing steam turbine generator and (d) all other associated appurtenances.  The total contract value for Shaw’s scope of work on the Station is approximately $275 million.  DE Carolinas has rights to terminate the agreement with Shaw at any time at DE Carolinas’ convenience, subject to customary cancellation and demobilization charges in accordance with the terms of the agreement.
