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.
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.
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.
Indianapolis Power and Light Company (IPL) provides electric service to more than 470,000 users in the area and surrounding communities, with Petersburg and Harding Street Plants, the company’s two biggest plants, accounting for a majority of that generation.

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.
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 project included the design and construction of transmission structure foundations, including upgrading and converting existing 138kV to 230kV with new structures, power conductors and OPGW. The project also incorporated the demolition and reinforcement of existing 138kV structures.
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.
