KBR (NYSE: KBR) today announced that it was awarded a contract by Kentucky
Utilities, a subsidiary of PPL Corporation, to provide engineering,
procurement and construction (EPC) services for the installation of air
emissions control systems at its Ghent Generating Stations in Ghent, KY.

The project is part of Kentucky Utilities’ investment plan to install
environmental upgrades to reduce air emissions across its generating fleet,
including an approximate $600 million investment for the addition of air
emissions controls at its Ghent plant. KBR will lead the installation of
