Black & Veatch Holding Company Announces Port Westward Unit 2

Black & Veatch Holding Company has announced that Port Westward Unit 2, a 220MW facility near Clatskanie, Oregon, has begun commercial operation.

Black & Veatch to Consolidate Some of its Operations into a Single Complex

Black & Veatch announced that it will relocate its Telecommunications and Special Projects professionals in Overland Park to the Overland Park Trade Center (OPTC) following building renovations. The move will consolidate some of the company's operations into a single complex. The move also accommodates continued growth projected for the company. More than 700 Black & Veatch professionals will relocate from two Overland park offices this fall to the OPTC that is being renovated by Occidental Management Inc. of Wichita, Kansas. In addition, the building has the potential to provide space for the company's expected job growth of more than 500 in Kansas over the next five years. The Telecommunications and Special Projects professionals in Overland Park are currently housed in Corporate Woods and 6601 College Boulevard. The leases at the two facilities expire later this year.

Black & Veatch has been called upon for the second time to combine its licensed PRICO® LNG technology and global engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) capabilities with the services of Keppel Shipyard Limited (Keppel Shipyard). Together, they will convert a Golar LNG carrier, the GIMI, into a Floating Liquefaction Vessel (FLNGV). Black & Veatch will provide its successful PRICO® technology as well as perform detailed engineering and process design, specify and procure topside equipment, and provide commissioning support for the FLNGV topsides and liquefaction process. Construction activities of the GIMI will commence when Keppel Shipyard receives the notice to proceed which is expected to be issued no later than November 2015. The completed FLNG facility is expected to be delivered around 33 months after the notice to proceed is given. The contract, which includes both Keppel Shipyard's and Black & Veatch's work scopes, is worth approximately USD 705 million.
