Carroll County Energy Project

Carrollton, Ohio

The Carroll County Energy Project consisted of constructing a breaker and a half switchyard, and installing an overhead transmission line as an extension of the AEP Canton-Tidd 345kV line. Kenny Construction’s scope of work included engineering and procurement of all materials and equipment, all construction related work, and commissioning and startup service to prepare the project for commercial operation. We were responsible for project management, construction management, testing and commissioning management, environmental compliance management, quality control, project controls, procurement/logistics support, and licensing/permitting support. Our teams provided safety oversight and training for all subcontractors on the project.

The Challenge

The successful delivery of this Project was based on strong coordination and management of multiple Subcontractors. Challenges of projects of this nature can include meeting strict permitting requirements and specifications. Timely completion of engineering and procurement of materials was also fundamental to ensure the project met its In Service Date.

 

The Solution

Strong communication was maintained throughout the project, KCC worked very closely with management at every point of the process to ensure the success of each phase of the project. Constant communication added to design issue resolution, coordinated construction scheduling and tracked daily site activities allowed the project to finish on time. KCC worked closely with supply chain personnel and their vendors to acquire partial and staged shipments necessary to keep line construction on schedule. Finally, Kenny worked with management, operations and field personnel to implement a new test and commissioning checklist coordinated to satisfaction.
