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.
Kiewit teamed with the owner early in the Langley Gulch Power Plant development to create a baseline, self-build proposal that was evaluated against outside competitors. Kiewit worked closely with the owner to develop a cost-competitive project.
The Kiewit and Henkels & McCoy team (Kh&m) was selected to construct the New Jersey portion of the new Susquehanna to Roseland Electric Reliability Transmission Project.
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.
Kiewit was awarded the contract for engineering and procurement for the Napanee Generating Station in Napanee, Ontario. The 970 MW gas-fueled facility will provide reliable on-demand power to local homes, schools and businesses as well as replace existing coal-fired power in the providence.
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.
To decrease the cost of hydroelectric power and increase the demand for service, Kiewit completed this bid-build contract to expand the Healey Falls Generating Station. Located about 15 kilometers north of Campbellford, the generating station includes a new unit in a spare bay inside the existing hydroelectric power plant once complete.
Working in a limited space with a five-week outage duration, the Kiewit team engineered, procured, constructed and performed startup of the air quality control system to tie it into Brayton Point’s Unit 3 at New England’s largest fossil fuel-fired power station.
Using an innovative approach, the project team chose to reuse existing ESP steel for the J.T. Deely Unit 2 SCR Retrofit Project instead of opting for demolition. This decision reduced the project construction schedule while minimizing disruption to plant operations.
The Kiewit team consisting of partners from Eastern District, Kiewit Power Constructors, Kiewit Power Engineers, and Mass Electric was awarded the contract to engineer, procure, construct, and start up the Homer City AQCS Project Units 1&2.
