The Project will create many benefits for communities located in the region. These include job creation, an increased demand for goods and services, and new tax revenues.
Over the construction period, the Project is expected to create a peak construction workforce of about 1,900 people. The jobs skills required for these positions will range from basic labor through the highly technical skills common to large construction projects.
After construction, the new units will be operated and maintained by Sunflower. Approximately 70 additional positions will be required to operate the new unit. Visit www.sunflower.net for more information about job opportunities at Sunflower.
In January 2009 Sunflower and the Central and Western Kansas Construction and Building Trades Association signed a memorandum of understanding affirming the trades association would provide labor for the construction site.
Doing Business With The Project
More information about vender and contractor opportunities will be available following the selection of the Project’s engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor.
Construction and operation of the Project will result in the purchase of many goods and services for the power plant. Goods and services during construction will be obtained from various local, regional, national, and international vendors. Construction materials such as concrete, aggregate and paint will likely be obtained locally, while major equipment such as the steam generator and steam turbines would be obtained nationally and internationally.
