Black & Veatch Corporation Key Developments
Tenaska’s Advanced Natural Gas Power Station Selects Black & Veatch for Engineering, Procurement and Construction Services
Aug 17 16
Black & Veatch has been selected to provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for a new 925 megawatt natural gas combined cycle power plant. Using advanced, high efficiency turbine technology and a recycled water cooling process, the Tenaska Westmoreland Generating Station will produce enough power to meet the energy needs of 925,000 homes. The station is located near Pittsburgh and will supply electricity to customers in Pennsylvania and 12 other Northeastern states that operate in the PJM market. PJM is a regional transmission organization (RTO) that coordinates the movement of wholesale electricity in the Northeast U.S. The generating station addresses growing electric power demands in the region while using the latest air quality controls to meet all state and federal emissions standards. To maximize efficient water use during power generation, the plant will be able to recycle water through the cooling process multiple times. In addition, two new pipelines to deliver clean-burning natural gas to the plant will be connected to existing regional pipelines. The facility is in the heart of the Marcellus and Utica gas shale fields; as a result it is expected that this local resource will be the primary fuel supply source. The project includes a 500Kv switchyard and switching station as well as 1.5 miles of power transmission lines to connect it to the PJM electric grid. Project construction began in 2016 with commercial operation scheduled in 2018.

MBHE African Power (PTY) Ltd Selects Black & Veatch to Provide Technical Assistance for the Waste-To-Energy Plant
Aug 2 16
Black & Veatch was selected by MBHE African Power (PTY) Ltd. to provide technical assistance for the waste-to-energy plant. The energy plant will be located in the Drakenstein Municipality, near Wellington in the Western Cape. The energy plant will contribute 10 megawatts to the nation's power grid enough to power more than 10,000 South African homes. Black & Veatch will serve as owner's engineers to provide fuel characterization, front-end engineering and design (FEED), and tender support for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC), operations and maintenance contracts. The facility will use both wet organic fraction to produce biogas and the dry fraction of locally available municipal waste (MSW) in an effort to provide clean burning natural gas energy to the Drakenstein Municipality region. In addition to providing a renewable energy resource, the waste management project will help address limited landfill availability by diverting up to 500 tons of MSW per day from the landfill to the WTE plant, reducing the waste volume by 90%.
