St. Joseph Energy Center
New Carlisle, Indiana
St. Joseph Energy Center is a 700-megawatt natural gas-fired, 2×1 combined-cycle plant that provides clean, efficient energy for more than 400,000 households and interconnects to the PJM energy market.
Kiewit engineered, procured and constructed this plant, featuring two Siemens SGT6-5000F combustion turbine generators, two Nooter-Eriksen heat-recovery steam generators and a Siemens SST6-5000 steam turbine generator with wet cooling.
St. Joseph Energy Center had a 27-month schedule, making it the most accelerated power plant that Kiewit had ever built. The 1.7-million-manhour project was completed on time and under budget.
