San Luis de la Paz Combined Cycle Project - Queretaro, Mexico.
InterGen selected Kiewit to provide owner's engineering services for their new 230 MW gas-fueled combined cycle project in Queretaro, Mexico. Kiewit's services included: detailed review of documentation developed by the EPC contractor; support of monthly project reviews; tracking contractor submittals and schedule performance; on-site oversight during construction and commissioning; and owner's representative for all aspects of plant performance testing and acceptance.
The Kiewit team used their experience to identify critical project elements requiring management attention to improve quality and schedule. Kiewit shared lessons learned from their extensive design and construction experience to improve reliability and performance without costly change orders. Kiewit's support continued during the transition from design to construction by reviewing the EPC contractor's construction documents and quality control practices. During the crucial performance and demonstration testing prior to acceptance, InterGen again relied on Kiewit's experts to protect their interests by dealing directly with the contractor's representatives.
