The Mechanical Equipment Erection project, owned by Santee Cooper and engineered by WorleyParsons, was located at the Cross Generating Station near Cross, South Carolina. The project was a new addition to an existing coal-fired power plant, which added 640 megawatts and brought total capacity up to 2,320 megawatts.
The PCL team’s scope of work included, among other things, the major mechanical equipment erection of an Alstom steam surface condenser, Howden induced draft, and forced draft fans. Additionally, PCL installed all the power/process piping, including main steam and hot and cold reheat, and the small bore power/process piping for the entire unit. After completing testing and start-up, PCL had earned the right to be the client’s Contractor of Choice.
