Located 5 miles southwest of downtown Memphis, the Allen Combined-Cycle Plant is a 1,100 MW natural gas-fired power plant that replaces Tennessee Valley Authority’s (TVA) almost 60-year-old Allen Fossil Plant. Kiewit was the EPC contractor for the new 2x1 combined-cycle facility, which features two GE 7HA.02 combustion turbines and a Toshiba steam turbine.
Kiewit developed a1.6 MW battery energy storage system (BESS) located in Kauai, Hawaii. Project scope included site design and system interconnection. The Kiewit team worked with the battery and PCS OEMs to streamline integration efforts ensuring adequacy of the overall design and that safety requirements of the local codes were met. Factory Acceptance Testing of the battery was performed at the PCS OEMs facility prior to shipment to site.
A consortium of TIC – The Industrial Company (TIC) and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America, engineered, procured and constructed the Petra Nova Carbon Capture Project, the first in the U.S., at NRG’s WA Parish Generating Station. The post-combustion carbon capture system reduces the facilities emissions by 90 percent and removes 5,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide daily. Captured from a 240 MW slipstream of flue gas, the carbon dioxide is compressed and transported to a mature oil field where it is injected to release more oil.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Mass. Electric Construction Co (MEC), partnered with Cypress Creek Renewables (CCR) to construct a 97 ME Solar Farm in Forest City, North Carolina. The 489-acre solar farm is expected to power more than 11,000 homes in Rutherford County. MEC was selected as the preferred contractor for our excellent safety and quality performance, as well as reputation for helping other solar developers across the country meet fast-track installation schedules.
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.
