Black & Veatch is providing comprehensive program management services to the city of Memphis for the colossal, $350-million Sewer Assessment and Rehabilitation Program. The program includes numerous infrastructure improvement projects across the entire system.
In a sign of the project’s significance, in March 2019 India’s Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi dedicated the Ennore liquefied natural gas (LNG) import, storage and regasification terminal to the nation.
Yorkshire Water’s £72 million Knostrop Energy & Recycling Facility turns sewage into energy, generating sufficient electricity to power 7,600 homes. The project, according to local member of parliament Hilary Benn, “is helping to create a lower carbon future in the Lower Aire Valley.”
Graying infrastructure is a major challenge for the power industry. Xcel Energy faced the formidable task of removing and replacing deteriorating transmission and distribution structures located on the side of a steep canyon above the heavily trafficked I-70 corridor.
Utilities are hardening their distribution systems to become more reliable. To do this, many are moving their aboveground systems to underground vaults to protect transformers and other components from damaging weather. Other utilities, such as American Electric Power (AEP) and Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G), are modernizing their existing underground systems to make field data visible and actionable.
Black & Veatch has completed the front-end engineering and design work and pre-construction planning for the Jordan Cove LNG Liquefaction Export Facility. The facility will use Black & Veatch’s patented PRICO liquefied natural gas (LNG) technology to produce up to 6 million tons of LNG per year for export.
What Black & Veatch does isn’t always visible to people and communities where we work. But today and in the future, families and businesses in the Gila Bend area of Arizona will enjoy renewable energy generated from glistening solar fields as they track and collect the inexhaustible power of the sun.
Like other utilities, PowerSouth has been faced with the need to increase capacity to accommodate growing demand from customers. The increased capacity requires network expansion to edge devices beyond substations.
To comply with the latest seismic safety standards and restore the supply reliability of its regional water infrastructure system, the Calaveras Dam Replacement Project includes a new 220 feet-high zoned earth and rock fill embankment, new concrete spillway and new intake tower.
The same thing that helps make water safe to drink also can cause serious illness, even death. With that kind of responsibility, the Hong Kong Water Supplies Department is bringing more clean drinking water to its citizens in much safer ways.
A coalition led by Black & Veatch donated tens of thousands of dollars in technology along with the manpower to provide a new, solar-driven power source for the SU Manuel Ortiz in Yabucoa, ground zero of Hurricane Maria.
Thomas Edison's invention of the electric lightbulb changed the world. But he also advocated energy conservation and once said, "I'd put money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don't have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that.”
Aging infrastructure is a critical issue for the power industry. The United Illuminating Company (UI) ran into this issue when it faced the daunting task of replacing existing transmission line conductors that were located on 100-year-old lattice towers that had been built on a historic railroad bridge.
