Located on the Island of Newfoundland, Vale's Long Harbour Processing Plant is one of the largest in the world to use a new hydrometallurgical process that will refine 50,000 tonnes per year of nickel ore in a more economical and environmentally friendly manner.
The scope of work included demolition of the existing hopper bottom, metal roofed reservoir, the construction of a new 20 MG cast-in-place reservoir, installation of chemical feed piping, level sensors, transmitters and associated conduits and control wiring.
T.E. Ibberson Company (Ibberson) was awarded the contract for the batch system expansion and conversion center addition at an operating conventional and organic custom petfood feed mill. The expansion significantly increased the mill’s capacity to combine and weigh ingredients prior to mixing. The conversion center addition allowed the bulk material to be packaged in 1-ton tote bags.
Kiewit was selected by the City of Somerton for the expansion of their Sequential Batch Reactor (SBR) Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP). Prior to the design commencing, Kiewit performed cost modeling and constructability reviews to aid in the determination if a Biological Nutrient Removal Process (BNR) design would be more beneficial than the original concept. Kiewit provided anticipated construction costs and schedules for the conversion of the existing SBRs to a BNR. Kiewit performed the same analysis in developing the cost and schedule for the construction of additional SBRs. These side by side comparisons allowed the selection of the best value expansion approach for the WWTP. The BNR approach was selected and increased the current .8 MGD to 1.8 MGD for an addition of .6 MGD in capacity from the original concept.
The Union Hills Water Treatment Plant Rehabilitation project involved the complete replacement and upgrade of half of the plant’s 5kV electrical feed, including construction of a new electrical building expansion and 2,500+ LF of new ductbank installation amidst numerous existing utilities. New electrical switchgear and motor control equipment were furnished to upgrade the plant’s finished water pump systems.
The project involved building a 382,000-square-foot premium pet food manufacturing facility to replace an aging plant. T.E. Ibberson Company (Ibberson) was selected as the design-build contractor based on positive experiences from an earlier project.
The City of Bakersfield awarded Kiewit Pacific Co., a subsidiary of Kiewit Corporation, a $29 million project to upgrade the existing Bakersfield Wastewater Treatment Plant. To date, this project is the largest contract the City of Bakersfield has ever awarded.
T.E. Ibberson Company (Ibberson) was awarded the contract for a premium new dog and cat food facility that was a highly confidential project at the time it was conceived and built. The extruded, dry pet food process was designed jointly by Nutro and Ibberson. The facility itself was designed and constructed by Ibberson.
In May 2000, Kiewit Pacific Co. was selected to construct this $98 million, 12 MGD water treatment plant. The project consists of 31 structures, including an administration building, three oxidation ditches, four secondary clarifiers, two waste-activated sludge tanks, a solids handling basin, a chlorine contact basin, filter building, chemical feed building and influent pump station.
