Black & Veatch Holding Company Key Developments

The Power Generation Corporation 1 Selects Black & Veatch for Expansion of Power Plant in Vietnam

The Power Generation Corporation 1 has selected Black & Veatch Holding Company to be a partner in the fast-track expansion of the Duyen Hai 3 power plant in Vietnam. The plant is needed to address the country's 10% annual electricity demand and to bring more reliable power to the region. Working with Sumitomo Corporation, Black & Veatch will serve as the project technical lead on the expansion of the Duyen Hai 3 power plant in Vietnam's Tra Vinh Province. This role includes overall plant engineering liaison and commissioning. The company will also procure certain balance of plant equipment. Sumitomo was selected in November 2014 by Power Generation Corporation 1, a subsidiary of state-utility Vietnam Electricity (EVN). Sumitomo will serve as the prime engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor to build the 688 megawatt (MW) supercritical coal-fired plant expansion and other related infrastructure. The plant will be completed by 2018.

Black & Veatch Expands Relationship with Tesla Motors to Include Energy Storage Systems

Black & Veatch announced the expansion of its relationship with Tesla Motors. Black & Veatch provides design, engineering and construction services for large-scale commercial, industrial and municipal facilities using Tesla Energy Storage products. Energy storage services broaden the range of services Black & Veatch provides to Tesla. Black & Veatch’s SII team has designed more than 24MW of behind-the-meter stationary capacity at more than 20 commercial and industrial facilities in support of Tesla’s energy storage initiative.

Exelon Generation Selects Black & Veatch as Owner's Engineer

Black & Veatch has been selected as owner's engineer by Exelon Generation for the installation of two 1,000 megawatt combined cycle natural gas units in Texas. The units will meet growing electricity demand in Texas while reducing the amount of water used to produce power in the drought-prone state. The units are being built at Exelon Generation's gas-fired generating stations in Colorado Bend, southwest of Houston, and Wolf Hollow, west of Dallas. New General Electric gas turbine technology, 7HA.02 gas turbines, will make the units among the cleanest and most efficient in the U.S. The units will use dry cooling instead of the traditional wet cooling towers to minimize overall water usage. They are designed for rapid start-up and turndown efficiency to address varying power demands. In 2013, Black & Veatch began providing site feasibility analysis and conceptual design services for the projects. The company also assisted in the selection of major equipment suppliers. This included support with technical and commercial negotiations. As owner's engineer, Black & Veatch's services include engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) specification development and design support. Black & Veatch's end-to-end delivery will ensure project quality and scheduling certainty across all phases of the installation. Project construction began in January 2015. Commercial operation is scheduled for 2017.
