Kiewit projects have had a lot to celebrate lately, achieving major milestones on time or ahead of schedule. Read on to learn about some of these big wins.
In Cameron Parish, Louisiana, the Calcasieu Pass LNG export project received its first module from the Kiewit Offshore Services site in Ingleside, Texas. The module was delivered in April, two days ahead of schedule. Under the terms of the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract, Kiewit Louisiana Co. will design, engineer, construct, commission, test and guarantee the facility for Venture Global Calcasieu Pass, LLC. Calcasieu Pass will be capable of handling 10 million tonnes per annum. The facility is scheduled to be up and running in 2022.
Kiewit regional office topped off
Representatives from the construction team, Kiewit and the local Denver community gathered in early March to top off the new Kiewit regional headquarters in Lone Tree, Colorado. The highest steel beam, signed by many Kiewit employees who will work at the new facility, was set in place atop the new structure. Kiewit Building Group Inc. is building the new regional headquarters, which is scheduled for completion in 2021.
Los Ramones Energy Center
Kiewit Energy de Mexico safely first-fired both GE H-Class gas turbines at the Los Ramones Energy Center in Mexico. With this milestone achieved, the project is 99% complete. Once in operation, the facility, located in Los Ramones, Nuevo Leon, will become the most efficient gas-fired peaker plant in Mexico.
Modules expected early at GCGV
The Gulf Coast Growth Ventures LLC (GCGV) project in Gregory, Texas, will receive another shipment of critical path utilities modules soon. The water treatment and boiler feed water modules sailed ahead of schedule on April 14. A joint venture between Kiewit Energy Group Inc. and Chiyoda International Corporation (CKJV) is completing the engineer, procure and construct contract for the greenfield 1.8 million tonnes per annum ethylene plant. The multi-billion dollar facility will contain the world’s largest ethane steam cracker unit. Its heavily modularized design includes 26 pipe rack modules, 10 large process and utility modules, and four steam cracking furnace modules.
