Black & Veatch Holding Company Key Developments

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.
