Shaping the Future of Energy TM
Anchorage, Alaska, May 2016 - After winning an Owner's Engineering contract with Anchorage Municipal Light & Power (AML&P) in 2011 to support the development of a 120 MW combined cycle power project, AML&P has awarded IEC with multiple contract extensions and additional funding to continue its on-site support and provide construction management, design review, field engineering, and special inspection services throughout the completion of the project. IEC has been embedded with AML&P from Day 1, collaborating on development of project scope, specifications and project execution.
May 2016 - IEC is currently developing a preliminary engineering evaluation that includes development of a conceptual design and detailed cost estimate for a large-scale solar photovoltaic project at the SMUD Rancho Seco site. Tasks include evaluation of the technical potential for development of a grid-connected solar PV installation, investigation of interconnection options, development of a conceptual design and potential solar layout at the site, and a Levelized Cost of Energy analysis on the proposed project design.
April 2016 - IEC recently completed feasibility study to evaluate Solar Photovoltaic (PV) and Biogas Storage Integration in SMUD Service Territory. To complete the study, IEC modeled the optimum performance of a hybrid biogas-photovoltaic system and analyzed the hybrid biogas-photovoltaic system to determine whether the hybrid system and the integration of biogas and PV can be implemented elsewhere in the SMUD Region. As part of this task, IEC addressed locational benefits and costs for the proposed project.
April 2016 - OCI Solar brought on IEC Corporation to provide engineering design, procurement and construction services for the Alamo 1 substation. OCI Solar has contracted with an Energy Storage System (ESS) Contractor for installation of a new 1 MW battery storage system at the Alamo 1 substation. The new ESS will tie-in to the existing substation and provide an additional source to the grid. OCI requested IEC to provide engineering design services for modifying the existing substation protection system to incorporate the new ESS system.
The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) is proposing to replace the existing DC marine electrode portions of the Sylmar Ground Return System (SGRS). The existing SGRS is an integral component of the Pacific Direct Current Intertie (PDCI) Transmission Line, which transmits bulk power between Los Angeles and the Pacific Northwest.
The IEC Team is responsible for supporting LADWP on the study, permitting, and design of the Shoreline and Marine portion of the SGRS Project. Based on the approved design, the IEC Team will then prepare a Request for Proposal (RFP) to provide services to procure and construct the marine DC electrode for the Sylmar Converter Station.
March 2016 - IEC is continuing to provide electrical engineering support for PG&E hydroelectric projects as part of a contractor engineering team. IEC's tasks include: engineering services for the PG&E Dutch Flat Governor replacement design; Helms Power Plant electrical engineering analysis; Rock Creek Power House arc flash remediation design; and Electra Power House arc flash remediation design.
February 2016 - Ethos Energy Group has contracted with IEC Corporation to provide a range of engineering and consulting services to support the Sacramento Power Authority Cogen III Facility. Ethos Energy, the plant operator on behalf of SMUD, is preparing to update the SCA Cogen III plant with the incorporation of a tertiary water connection to supply reclaimed water to plant users currently using potable water. The tertiary water will be supplied from a new service main being installed along 47th Avenue by the Sacramento Regional County Sanitation District (Regional San). This project will connect to the new Regional San tertiary main and supply water to the plant cooling tower and the landscape irrigation system. Ethos Energy has asked IEC to develop a complete design package for the project. IEC is also providing detailed engineering for the natural gas (NG) piping modifications and preparing an Engineer’s Estimate to construct the underground tertiary water pipeline at the facility.
February 2016 - IEC is working as part of a team on a design package for a new Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) substation project located in El Centro, California. IEC is providing engineering services to perform a grounding evaluation, including a ground study report, grounding plan, and grounding details.
January 2016 - SMUD has awarded IEC Corporation with a contract to provide complete engineering services for the auxiliary boiler design at Carson (CVFA) cogeneration facility. In addition, SMUD has tasked IEC with budgetary cost estimating, a study of the LP process steam return for power production, GateCycle modeling and heat rate curves, and boiler piping analysis and cost estimating.
