The Antelope Station Grid Switching Expansion Project will allow an existing generating station to switch between the SPP and ERCOT grid systems. Kiewit Engineering and Design is designing the switch to a grid configuration consisting of a single-breaker, double-bus.
The Kiewit team was awarded the contract to design and install the Ghent Coal Combustion Residuals (CCR) Transport Project. Upon completion, it will condition, dewater and transport CCR from the four coal-fired boilers to a remote landfill storage. The project includes the installation of a pneumatic system for conveying fly ash, including fly ash storage silos, gypsum dewatering facility and bottom ash dewatering facility. The ash handling project incorporates a 1.8-mile overland pipe conveyor for transporting the dewatered CCR to a landfill.
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.
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.
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.
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-Ã -Valleau, Carleton and Gros-Morne.
Mass. Electric Construction Co (MEC), partnered with Cypress Creek Renewables (CCR) to construct a 97 ME Solar Farm in Forest City, North Carolina. The 489-acre solar farm is expected to power more than 11,000 homes in Rutherford County. MEC was selected as the preferred contractor for our excellent safety and quality performance, as well as reputation for helping other solar developers across the country meet fast-track installation schedules.
