The Subiya Water Distribution Complex project serves to address increased demands on the availability of potable water and reduce reliance on groundwater supply to a sustainable level.
The project provides up to 125 million imperial gallons per day (migd) of potable water to the Subiya New City development and existing water distribution complex. Black & Veatch led design and construction supervision.
The Salt River Project (SRP) had a distance problem. As part owner of one of the largest nuclear power plants in the United States, SRP needed a transmission line that would span the 150 miles between the plant and a substation. Adding urgency to the need was a location that was demanding more and more energy – the rapidly growing Phoenix, Ariz., area.
When clients plan to deploy a new or unproven technology to the marketplace, it helps to count on a sole-source services provider. Black & Veatch has ability to scale the right mix of resources to engineer and deploy new ideas on a nationwide basis. It’s an ability that comes from more than 40 years of designing and deploying networks.
Black & Veatch and Samsung are performing a major U.S. wireless network upgrade program for Sprint. The program includes plans for deployment of next-generation, multimode base stations at thousands of cell sites in markets from the Pacific Coast to the Great Lakes, including San Francisco, Minneapolis, Indianapolis and Chicago.
Reliable, secure transmission of power to customers is a major concern to all utilities. In a dynamic industry with constant change, utilities must update their systems to keep pace with new technology. The challenge is greater when multiple locations must be managed at the same time.
Black & Veatch provided engineering, procurement support and construction management support for a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) installation at St. Johns River Power Park (SJRPP), a facility jointly owned by JEA and Florida Power & Light Company (FPL), located in Jacksonville, Florida.
The United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Chicago District, has been operating a series of electrical fish barriers since 2002 to deter the inter-basin establishment of Asian carp and other invasive fish species. One of the installations is along the Chicago Sanitary and Shipping Canal, which connects the Mississippi River Basin with the Great Lakes.
The passage of time and extreme weather conditions have been taking their toll on the electricity infrastructure in Alaska. This is a harsh truth faced by the six electric utilities that serve Alaska’s Railbelt Region, which extends from Fairbanks through Anchorage down into the Kenai Peninsula. The Alaska Energy Authority (AEA) is working with the Railbelt electric utilities to address these strategic challenges with plans that support the anticipated conditions.
For nearly a century, waste slag and sludge was dumped next to the Sharon Steel plant in Sharon, Pennsylvania. The waste contained metals and polyaromatic hydrocarbons at levels that presented risk to human health and the environment. As a result, the site was listed as a Superfund site by the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 1998. The federal government enacted the Superfund Act as a measure to clean up hazardous waste sites.
The expression “beauty is only skin deep” certainly applies to San Francisco, California. On the surface, it is considered one of the most beautiful cities on earth. But the underside of the city is a different story. San Francisco straddles a major fault line where tremors are frequent and earthquakes are not uncommon. There is also an issue with a mineral compound known as Naturally Occurring Asbestos (NOA), which is in the ground and near the surface. The area is also environmentally delicate and requires extensive permitting by the state and city to do any underground work.
Black & Veatch is supporting DTE Energy as owner’s engineer in the development and design of multiple wind energy projects in the “Thumb region” on the Lower Peninsula of Michigan. The first 109 megawatts of power came on line in 2012, and another 110 MW was added in 2013. DTE Energy has a total of 600 MW of wind power in the development pipeline.
Black & Veatch was selected to provide engineering, procurement and construction services (EPC) for the Russell City Energy Center (RCEC) Interconnect Project. The project improves the PG&E system by interconnecting the new 600 megawatt RCEC power generation facility. RCEC is part of PG&E’s diversified portfolio that ensures reliable energy supplies for customers.
The City of Fort Collins Utilities (Fort Collins) was awarded a Smart Grid Investment Grant (SGIG) by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for the deployment of an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) system and other smart grid technologies.
The goal for Black & Veatch and the Central Region Urban Environmental Improvement Project (CRUEIP) was to improve urban environmental infrastructure in six provincial towns in central Vietnam. This is a highly flood-prone region where new capital works have not been sufficient for local communities and hundreds of thousands of residents.
