In 2013, Black & Veatch was awarded an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract to design and build the 32-megawatt utility-class Gila Bend Solar Power Plant located on 400 acres in Gila Bend, Arizona.
The combined cycle project involves adding heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs) on each combustion turbine to capture the waste heat and convert it to steam, which powers a new steam turbine generator and adds to the features of the plant.
The Mindanao region of the Philippines faced near daily power shortages in both the wet and dry seasons. With hydropower accounting for more than half of the region’s electric generation capacity, power was often available for only 12 hours a day and economic growth in the region had been limited.

Black & Veatch was chosen as the prime consultant for the Silicon Valley Advanced Water Purification Center (SVAWPC). The project is a regional approach and cooperative effort between the Santa Clara Valley Water District and the city of San José.
To help clients realize greater levels of sustainability and to ensure reliable operations, Black & Veatch constructed a microgrid to power the company’s Innovation Pavilion at its World Headquarters in Overland Park, Kansas.
