Near the shore of Lake Erie, in Oregon, Ohio, an 869-megawatt (MW) combined cycle power plant, known as the Oregon Clean Energy Center, is now providing critical baseload power to the PJM regional transmission organization and delivering value to virtually all stakeholders.
Black & Veatch was contracted to optimize an underground stormwater storage scheme’s design through the adoption of the integrated 1D network, 2D overland flow and 3D computational fluid dynamics models, a first for flood alleviation in Hong Kong.
With water already at a premium in a stubbornly parched region of the United States, a global oil giant had sustainability in mind when it searched for ways to clean and repurpose water produced as a byproduct of one of its enhanced oil recovery operations.
Innovative long-term planning and advanced engineering at the upcoming Integrated Waste Management Facility (IWMF) in Singapore will enable the island nation reap the benefits of energy and resource recovery maximisation for years to come.
The Grand River Dam Authority chose Black & Veatch as its owner’s engineer to help develop bid strategy, prepare bid specifications, oversee technical negotiations, and perform follow-up construction management for the new natural gas-fuled, 1x1 combined-cycle generating facility.
The energy security microgrid at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, in San Diego, California will provide resiliency, incorporate renewable energy, and allow operations at mission-critical facilities to continue if the utility power grid is compromised or damaged.
The Koch fertilizer production plant in Enid, Oklahoma, had a water problem—there wasn't enough, prices were too high, and it needed more. After performing technical evaluations and developing preliminary process designs, Black & Veatch recommended a water treatment system that would receive tertiary wastewater from the city's wastewater treatment plant, treating it for reuse within the fertilizer plant.
BHP Billiton chose Black & Veatch as the engineer of record to lead the design, procurement, project controls, resident engineering, pre-commissioning and commissioning for the marine works and desalination components of the Escondida Water Supply project.
Arnold Air Force Base is home to the Arnold Engineering Development Complex (AEDC), the largest and most advanced complex of flight simulation test facilities in the world. Like many military installations, on-site facilities are aging and require Sustainment, Restoration and Modernization (SRM) services.
As all-electric cars increase in popularity, a critical issue for drivers is having sufficient charging resources to stay on the road during longer trips, not to mention paying for the power. Volta Charging aims to help alleviate range anxiety by rapidly scaling its portfolio of free public electric car charging stations.
