Black & Veatch Corporation Key Developments

Black & Veatch Wins Water Management Role in Expansion of HKIA

Black & Veatch has won a water management role in the expansion of Hong Kong International Airport, or HKIA. The Black & Veatch team will design the hydraulic and water treatment systems for the new Three-runway System (3RS) to be completed by 2024. The HKIA expansion will meet future air traffic growth and maintain its competitiveness as an international aviation hub while improving the facilities' operational resilience. The company's design will save on future costs, reduce demand for potable water supply and increase the lifespan of the infrastructure. The design will also incorporate smart network systems and asset management principles that will enable short and long term decision making that optimizes water resources as well as operational and capital costs. The sewerage system will be protected against severe corrosive attacks given its coastal location and potentially septic environment through a composite of physical, chemical and biological solutions. An advanced grey water system will first collect then recycle grey water along with other treated water for reuse. The treated grey water will be reused for irrigation. This will reduce demand for potable water for irrigation and reduce the loading to the sewerage system. Compact technologies will be used to limit the footprint required for sewage treatment without sacrificing treatment efficiency. Seawater will also be used as an alternative source to cool water for air conditioning and flushing purposes, further reducing demand for potable water. A smart drinking water supply system will provide real-time monitoring, automatic supply control, intelligent data analysis and a decision-making tool to take cost-effective actions.

Tenaska’s Advanced Natural Gas Power Station Selects Black & Veatch for Engineering, Procurement and Construction Services

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.
