Westmoreland Generating Station
|Scope of Work||
Tenaska, Inc., Black & Veatch Construction, Inc.
Brandon Rumbaugh Solutions (BRS) (previously Tri-County Engineering) has been providing high-precision Quality Assurance Site Surveying in support of the Teneska Westmoreland Generating Station since February 2016, on behalf of Tenaska’s EPC, Black & Veatch Construction, Inc. The Tenaska Westmoreland Generation Station is a 925-megawatt, combined cycle electrical generating facility which will meet the energy needs of approximately 925,000 homes, delivered through the PJM Interconnection regional transmission organization.
The QA site surveying includes locating anchor bolts for critical equipment to within 0.0005 feet horizontal tolerance and 0.003 feet vertical tolerance, and the establishment of first order monumentation around the power plant site. Attaining this level of precision requires the use of state-of-the-art, high-precision survey equipment and highly-experienced field survey personnel. BRS’s survey equipment includes Spectra Precision Focus 35 robotic total stations which feature motorized drives to quickly and precisely turn to and repeat measurements, which is paramount to meet the QA project requirements.
In addition to the QA site surveying, BRS is provided civil engineering support to B&V for the Westmoreland Generating Station project, including earthwork volume calculations and associated CADD work to assist the EPC with Bill of Quantities. The civil engineering support was directed by a Pennsylvania-registered Professional Engineer, and the CADD deliverables and prepared using both AutoCADD and Microstation.
