InterGen selected Kiewit to provide owner's engineering services for their new 230 MW gas-fueled combined cycle project in Queretaro, Mexico. Kiewit's services included: detailed review of documentation developed by the EPC contractor; support of monthly project reviews; tracking contractor submittals and schedule performance; on-site oversight during construction and commissioning; and owner's representative for all aspects of plant performance testing and acceptance
The project included the design and construction of transmission structure foundations, including upgrading and converting existing 138kV to 230kV with new structures, power conductors and OPGW. The project also incorporated the demolition and reinforcement of existing 138kV structures.
As part of its commitment to expand fuel diversity, Tennessee Valley Authority replaced its two oldest coal-fired units at the Paradise Fossil Plant with a natural gas-fired power plant. Kiewit was selected as the EPC contractor for the new 3x1 combined-cycle facility, which now generates 1,100 MW of power.
A Kiewit-led joint venture completed the civil, mechanical and electrical design and construction of this $28.4 million 50-megawatt (MW) powerhouse. Throughout construction, the team emphasized the need to work toward a common goal by holding partnering sessions with project participants.
The Kiewit team engineered, procured and constructed the 800 MW natural gas-fired facility with four 200 MW Siemens?? 5000F(4) simple cycle units and selective catalytic reduction (SCR), oxidation catalysts, exhaust gas-tempering air fan systems and three fuel gas compressors.
Kiewit was selected by Public Service Electric & Gas (PSEG) for engineering and procurement services on the Northeast Grid Reliability Project. The project included upgrading existing tranmission lines, converting substation configurations and adding underground circuit to increase capacity while reducing transmission system congestion.
Mass. Electric Construction Co (MEC) installed an 880 KW roof mounted PV system on the Waltham High School in Massachusetts. The scope of work included PV modules- 3080 each LG250 mods; inverters 2 each- Solaron 333kW; an Hb Solar Mounting System (100% ballasted) including ballast; Solar BOS fused Combiner Boxes; Data Acquisition System (DAS); and (8) 200A rated Fusible DC Disconnect.
A Kiewit-led partnership completed its last phase of a six year contract with Cartier Wind Energy by erecting the last of a total of 354 GE 1.5MW SLE windmills, scattered throughout 4 different wind farms in the Gaspésie region: Baie-des-Sables, Anse-? -Valleau, Carleton and Gros-Morne.
This 50-megawatt (MW) hydroelectric plant produces a non-consumptive, non-polluting and renewable form of energy for some 7,000 households. Built under an engineer-procure-construct contract, Kiewit completed the project with minimal impacts to the surrounding landscape.
