North American Industrial Projects Under Construction Exceed $260 Billion, an Industrial Info News Alert

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - September 2, 2008) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- The value of industrial projects currently under construction in North America is now more than $260 billion, according to a recent analysis of Industrial Info's North American Industrial Database. The large amount of industrial projects under construction in North America supports the fact that industrial construction is increasing, especially in the Power, Metals & Minerals, Pharma-Biotech, Refining and Oil & Gas industries in North America. The amount of activity currently under way is putting a strain on engineering and construction resources, labor, raw material supply and long-lead equipment delivery times -- in some cases, delaying project implementation. With 324 projects totaling more than $83 billion, the Power Industry leads all industries in project construction. One of the larger projects currently under construction is the $2.9 billion Prairie State Energy Campus being built by Peabody Energy (NYSE:BTU) (Saint Louis, Missouri).
