K&M served as Owner’s Engineer for TECO Power Services (TPS) providing Construction Oversight and engineering consulting services for the McAdams combined cycle power plant. The plant uses highly efficient GE 7FA combustion turbines in a 2×1 configuration. It also employs two heat recovery steam generators with selective catalytic reduction for lowering NOx emissions and one GE reheat steam turbine generator. The plant is designed to interconnect with the Entergy transmission system and sell electricity to wholesale customers in the Southeast and Midwest, including AK, LA, MS, AL, GA, TN and KY.
K&M mobilized an on-site project team to perform such services as progress monitoring, construction quality monitoring, EPC change request reviews, schedule compliance oversight and regular status reporting and forecasting. K&M also attended meetings to discuss issues such as safety, environmental matters, quality, progress, and start-up. K&M was responsible for identifying situations that could jeopardize the on-time completion and commissioning of the project including, but not limited to, material shortages, labor shortages, quality concerns, and design changes. K&M also offered its technical expertise to recommend corrective measures to the project owner to ensure successful commissioning on-time and on-budget.
