Some 60 aging coal miners lace up their boots, snap on headlamps and raise their fists three times in the air with shouts of "Yosh!" in a pledge to complete their shifts without an accident. Then the mostly middle-aged men head toward the mouth of the No. 2 Incline Shaft, lights bobbing, to begin the 40-minute trip into this damp, dusty world 2,000 feet beneath the sea.

General Electric Co. has been awarded a $750-million contract to build a power plant in Japan that will become the world's largest combined-cycle power plant, the company's top executive announced Wednesday. "This is the largest fossil generation order ever for GE," GE Chairman John F. Welch Jr. told shareholders during the company's annual stockholders meeting here. Tokyo Electric Power Co., a privately owned utility, awarded the contract to GE. Once in operation, the combined-cycle power plant will be capable of generating 2,600 megawatts of power--600 megawatts more than the world's largest combined-cycle plant currently in operation, Welch said.

One of the hottest trends in the energy business involves a process that is all about coldness -- minus 260 degrees, to be exact. That's the temperature at which natural gas becomes a liquid, and that opens a world of possibilities for transporting gas around the globe. When cooled to a liquid, gas can be transported in cryogenic tankers, shipped across oceans and regasified at special terminals. No longer is natural gas limited to overland pipeline distribution.
