The Woodbridge Energy Center (WEC) is a 700-megawatt gas-fired power plant located on the site of an abandoned chemical plant. It will generate enough electricity to power more than 600,000 homes while increasing grid reliability. In an effort to stay eco-friendly, as well as cutting edge, the facility will use the most advanced generation technology today and, when complete, WEC will be one of the nation’s cleanest and most efficient generation stations.
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.
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.
Mass. Electric Construction Co (MEC) installed an 880 KW roof mounted PV system on the Waltham High School in Massachusetts. The scope of work included PV modules- 3080 each LG250 mods; inverters 2 each- Solaron 333kW; an Hb Solar Mounting System (100% ballasted) including ballast; Solar BOS fused Combiner Boxes; Data Acquisition System (DAS); and (8) 200A rated Fusible DC Disconnect.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Kiewit developed a1.6 MW battery energy storage system (BESS) located in Kauai, Hawaii. Project scope included site design and system interconnection. The Kiewit team worked with the battery and PCS OEMs to streamline integration efforts ensuring adequacy of the overall design and that safety requirements of the local codes were met. Factory Acceptance Testing of the battery was performed at the PCS OEMs facility prior to shipment to site.
The Kiewit team consisting of partners from Eastern District, Kiewit Power Constructors, Kiewit Power Engineers, and Mass Electric was awarded the contract to engineer, procure, construct, and start up the Homer City AQCS Project Units 1&2.
