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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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 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.
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.
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.
