The Highest Priority
Cricket Valley Energy Center (CVEC) places safety as its highest priority. Combined-cycle, natural gas facilities must conform to stringent federal and State safety regulations for construction and operations.
The CVEC Comprehensive Site and Safety Plan (CSSP) coordinates with local law enforcement and fire departments, detailing safety procedures, training, and testing.
Perimeter fencing secures the site, and authorized staff is on site 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year. All vehicle and personnel traffic is controlled through a single main gate via the main control room building, with surveillance in and around the property.
The plant is equipped with state-of-the-art control systems designed to automatically shut down the facility and the fuel supply at the first sign of an irregularity. Additionally, the plant has top-of-the-line fire detection, and alarm and suppression mechanisms developed in consultation with Town of Dover fire and emergency officials.
