As a leader in the power generation market, Kiewit helps clients meet the challenge of changing power consumption trends and generating strategies by building “run-of-the-river” hydroelectric, nuclear and geothermal power plants, as well as cogeneration, combined-cycle and waste-to-energy generation and resource facilities. Kiewit brings in-depth expertise to deliver power projects using engineer-procure-construct (EPC), design-build, design-assist and traditional bid-build delivery models. With more than just a construction focus, Kiewit provides a complete array of design and engineering services for major power plant projects that set industry standards for quality design and superior functionality worldwide. Over the past 10 years, Kiewit has either designed, constructed and/or provided start-up services for more than 600 power-related projects totaling nearly $18 billion in contract revenue.
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-Ã -Valleau, Carleton and Gros-Morne.
The Lower Mattagami River Project is an investment into clean, renewable energy. It is the largest hydroelectric power generation initiative in nearly 40 years in Northern Ontario. Ontario Power Generation (OPG) selected Kiewit-Alarie, a Partnership (KAP) to administer the design-build project on the Mattagami River
As part of Xcel’s compliance with the Colorado Public Utilities Commission’s approved emissions reduction plan under the state’s Clean Air-Clean Jobs Act (CACJ), the utility will retire its coal-fired units at Cherokee Station located in Denver, Colo. Xcel Energy retired Unit 1 (107 MW) in May 2012 and Unit 2 (106 MW) in October 2011; Unit 3 (152 MW) will be retired in 2015, and Unit 4 (352 MW) will be converted to natural gas in 2017. The new Cherokee 569-megawatt 2x1 Combined Cycle Power Plant will provide replacement power at the Cherokee Site.
Kiewit was awarded the contract to engineer, procure and construct a nominal 300 MW 1x1 combined cycle plant and a nominal 200 MW 2x0 simple cycle plant to replace the existing steam boiler Unit 3, which will be decommissioned after the new units are in service. Equipment includes a GE 7FA.05 CTG, GE A14 STG, Vogt triple pressure HRSG, air-cooled condenser and two GE LMS 100 CTGs. The combined cycle plant will utilize the GE Rapid Response power train capability.
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 provided owner's engineering services to Duke Energy for their Hines Energy Complex. The scope included a technology and feasibility study and subsequent delivery of owner specifications for EPC delivery of a combustion turbine inlet chilling system.
Kiewit designed the automated water treatment chemical feed and replaced the existing manual chemical feed system with an automated system, including chemical feed tanks, pumps and instrumentation.
The Antelope Station Grid Switching Expansion Project will allow an existing generating station to switch between the SPP and ERCOT grid systems. Kiewit Engineering and Design is designing the switch to a grid configuration consisting of a single-breaker, double-bus.
Ontario Power Generation (OPG) awarded Kiewit-Alarie, a Partnership (KAP), the design-build contract for the redevelopment of the Wawaitin, Sandy Falls and Lower Sturgeon hydroelectric Generating Stations (GS) on the Upper Mattagami River and the Hound Chute GS on the Montreal River.
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.
