Owner's Engineer for Port Washington Combined-Cycle Plant
The repowering of the Port Washington Generating Station was a comprehensive approach to address electricity supply and reliability issues in a way that considered both the economy and the environment. Conversion to a two unit, gas-fired combined-cycle plant effectively doubles the generation output to 1,100-megawatts while reducing air emissions. The new plant replaces the historic Port Washington station consisting of five pulverized coal-fired units, each of 80-MW capacity.
As Owner's Engineer, our role was to ensure that the facility was installed in a way that optimized reliability, availability, maintainability and operability. The work included initial project development consulting, review and evaluation of design, documentation and installation activities, major equipment bid reviews, support during the transition between construction and the new operating plant and plant performance test protocol reviews, oversight and validation.
