HEAVY CIVIL AND MARINE CAPABILITIES
As an industry leader in heavy civil construction, Kiewit offers expertise beyond liquefaction facilities. We have the resources to self-perform all related heavy civil and marine scopes, including site clearing, dredging, ground improvements and deep foundations, as well as material offloading mooring systems and trestle and jetty structures.
WORLD-CLASS PLASTICS FACILITY
OLEFINS RECOVERY | FEED TO EPC
In 2017, Kiewit partnered with Chiyoda for this FEED to EPC opportunity for what would soon become a 1.8 MTPA ethylene plant in Gregory, Texas, known as GCGV. This plant has eight ethane cracking furnaces, an olefins recovery united and integrated utilities.
In 2018, CKJV, a partnership between Kiewit and Chiyoda, was awarded the EPC contract to design and build the plant on the Texas Gulf Coast. This plastics manufacturing facility, featuring the world’s largest ethane steam cracker unit, is also the first-of-its-kind large-scale modularized ethane plant.
Kiewit constructed a propane dehydrogenation facility, including pipe fabrication and module assembly. The scope included 170 pipe rack modules fabricated in multiple yards and pipe fabrication facilities.
RENEWABLE FUELS FACILITY
Kiewit was the general contractor for re-purposing an oil refinery complex into one of the world’s largest renewable fuels plants, producing 800 million gallons per year of renewable diesel, renewable gasoline and sustainable aviation fuel.
METHANE PYROLYSIS / AMMONIA FEED
Kiewit was contracted to perform a pre- and front-end engineering design studies for a 160,000 TPY carbon black facility.
