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.
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.
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. In order to meet EPA Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS) compliance, IPL is retrofitting five units at these sites with new environmental control equipment.
Kiewit teamed with the owner early in the Langley Gulch Power Plant development to create a baseline, self-build proposal that was evaluated against outside competitors. Kiewit worked closely with the owner to develop a cost-competitive project.
This 50-megawatt (MW) hydroelectric plant produces a non-consumptive, non-polluting and renewable form of energy for some 7,000 households. Built under an engineer-procure-construct contract, Kiewit completed the project with minimal impacts to the surrounding landscape.
Using an innovative approach, the project team chose to reuse existing ESP steel for the J.T. Deely Unit 2 SCR Retrofit Project instead of opting for demolition. This decision reduced the project construction schedule while minimizing disruption to plant operations.
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.
Kiewit was selected by Kansas City Power & Light to provide engineering and design assistance to replace the existing boiler ventilation fans, dampers and associated electrical components of the Sibley Generation Station Boiler Building--a coal-fired facility. Four ventilation fans were added around the boiler envelope on levels 2 and 3 to more effectively cool the boiler and associated equipment. The east wall of the boiler/turbine building will be cut to add additional intake openings and motorized dampners to aid in proper ventilation of the building.
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.
