Driven by the same spirit of innovation that defined Kiewit for more than a century, our work in the renewable energy market spans industries and is built on the cornerstone of continuous improvement. As renewable energy gains momentum, we will provide our clients the custom, industry-leading solutions they deserve.
Our experience includes large-scale solar installations, nitrate salt technology, water/steam receivers and thermal storage systems. Our vast experience with fossil-fueled generation in both the gas- and coal-fired markets is an ideal match for future concentrated solar power project requirements—whatever the technology, we deliver.
Our extensive geothermal experience includes nearly every major geothermal project in the United States since the early 1980s, in addition to several international projects. In fact, our dominance in the power market can be attributed to our early involvement in the geothermal industry, beginning with projects in the California and Nevada.
Wind power is the fastest growing renewable energy source in the United States. We have performed all construction phases of a major wind farm, from foundation construction and turbine and tower erection, to complete balance-of-plant installation and electrical collection systems.
Our hydroelectric experience includes some of the largest facilities in North America. Our capabilities extend the powerhouse structure and turbine installation to include major penstock installations, water-distribution systems and electrical, transmission and major civil work associated with infrastructure development.
