Combined Heat and Power
Environmental, financial and resiliency considerations have led many industrial, large commercial and institutional clients to combined heat and power (CHP), or cogeneration, systems that supply heat and off-grid power, or trigeneration systems, which also supply cooling. More efficient and cost-effective than using grid electricity and an on-site boiler, CHP systems reduce emissions as well as the impacts of fluctuating utility rates or availability. And while natural gas is the most common fuel, the use of renewable fuels such as biogas or wood waste is rising.
Kiewit has been involved with CHP projects with a wide range of configurations since 1983 — including some of the largest facilities in North America. Additionally, our teams have designed and installed more combustion turbine and heat recovery boiler systems than any other contractor in North America over the last 10 years. We can support your CHP or trigeneration project throughout the entire project development cycle, with services ranging from analysis, planning and detailed design to construction, procurement and startup.
