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.
KCP&L and Westar Energy selected the team of Kiewit and Sargent & Lundy LLC to engineer, procure and construct the retrofit to the 1500 MW plant. The La Cygne Generating Station Environmental Retrofit Project includes the installation of two Hitachi wet FGD scrubbers and new Hamon fabric filters on Unit 1 and Unit 2; and a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system, low-NOx burners and over-fire air system on Unit 2 of the facility.
Ontario Power Generation (OPG) awarded Kiewit-Alarie, a Partnership (KAP), the design-build contract for the redevelopment of the Wawaitin, Sandy Falls and Lower Sturgeon hydroelectric Generating Stations (GS) on the Upper Mattagami River and the Hound Chute GS on the Montreal River.
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.
PSE&G selected KHMA, a joint venture comprised of Kiewit Power Constructors, Henkels & McCoy, and Aldridge Electric, to construct the Bergen-Linden Corridor Overhead project. Designed to replace the existing double circuit 138kV transmission system from Bergen to Linden with a double circuit 345kV transmission system, the project will eliminate electric system capacity issues in northern New Jersey and provide better power quality in the region. PJM Interconnection determined the new transmission system was necessary to ensure reliable electric service, eliminate anticipated transmission constraints, and respond to PJM/Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) mandated infrastructure expansion. The KHMA team is responsible for removing the existing transmission lines and lattice structures, clearing, temporary access roads and bridges, erosion and sedimentation controls, foundation installation (drilled piers and vibratory caissons), steel pole erection, hardware and insulator installation, conductor, shield wire stringing, and fiber optic splicing.
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.
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.
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.
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.
