Turkey Point Power Station (Fall 12 - Spring 13) 

Project Location: Homestead, FL

Client: Bechtel

Scope: Provide project management, supervision and craftsmen necessary to support an “Extended Power Uprate” project. 

Turkey Point Power Station – Extended Power Uprate (Fall 12 – Spring 13)

Pinnacle was selected to provide project management, supervision and craftsmen to support an “Extended Power Uprate” project.  This scope of work was nearly identical to the scope of work performed on a separate unit one year earlier.  Work activities included building detailed schedules, work planning, coordination with other work groups to ensure optimum performance of all work activities, performing onsite fabrication of piping and pipe supports, demolition of existing piping systems, removal and replacement of two high pressure feed-water pumps, three condensate pumps, four moisture separator re-heaters and installation of thousands of feet of piping and associated pipe supports and much more.

Pinnacle provided another service that allowed for major schedule improvements.  This service included development of a critical method that utilized portable coordinate measuring machines (laser trackers) and 3-D computer modeling, sometimes referred to as laser templating.  The use of this method provided the controls necessary to perform major modifications to 42” (forty-two inch) steam supply piping interconnecting the plants moisture separator re-heaters and steam turbines in a remote location off of critical path, which improved the outage schedule by several days.

The project entailed the largest scope of work ever performed on an operating power plant and required the highest level of skill and expertise to complete successfully.  All work was completed on schedule, to a quality level exceeding industry codes and standards and with zero OSHA recordable incidents.  This project set a new standard by demonstrating the quantity and quality of critical safety related work that could be performed successfully at an operating power plant. As a further testament of this fact, this project in conjunction with the work at St. Lucie was awarded the 2013 Project of the Year by Power Engineering Magazine.
