Kiewit has served the power generation market for more than 30 years. We bring in-depth expertise to deliver power projects using engineer-procure-construct (EPC), design-build, design-assist and traditional bid-build models. We've helped clients meet the challenge of changing power consumption trends and generating strategies by building “run-of-the-river” hydroelectric, nuclear and geothermal power plants, as well as cogeneration, combined-cycle and waste-to-energy generation and resource facilities. Through our subsidiary Kiewit Power Engineers Co., we provide a complete array of design and engineering services for major power plant projects that set industry standards for quality design and superior function worldwide.
Over the last 10 years, Kiewit has constructed and provided start-up services for more than 400 power-related projects totaling more than $12.8 billion in contract revenue.
The Lower Mattagami River Project is a $1.7 billion investment into clean, renewable energy. It is the largest hydroelectric power generation initiative in nearly 40 years in Northern Ontario. Ontario Power Generation (OPG) selected Kiewit-Alarie, a Partnership (KAP) to administer the design-build project on the Mattagami River.
Due to damage caused by sediment as well as security concerns, the City is relocating water conveyance conduits below ground. Kiewit Pacific Co., a subsidiary of Kiewit Corporation, is constructing the Sandy River Conduit Relocation project. This design-build project involves taking the two existing above ground conduits and placing them in a 441-linear-foot tunnel under the Sandy River.
The $85.2 million Harlem River Tunnel project includes two 165-foot-deep circular shafts connected by a 675-foot-long horseshoe tunnel. Bedrock in this part of Manhattan is white marble and found at a depth of about 70 feet below grade.
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-à-Valleau, Carleton and Gros-Morne.
The team of Kiewit Power Engineers and TIC – The Industrial Company was awarded the contract to engineer, procure, construct and startup the 540-megawatt natural gas-fired combined cycle power plant with two Siemens V84.3A2 combustion turbines, two Vogt NEM heat recovery steam generators and a Siemens KN condensing steam turbine.
The team of Kiewit and Black & Veatch was awarded the contract to engineer, procure and construct the 200-megawatt coal-fired unit at the existing Dallman facility.
