World’s premier infrastructure firm AECOM announced that it has turned over care, custody and control of the newly completed West Riverside Energy Center located near Beloit in Wisconsin to Alliant Energy. As the engineering, procurement and construction provider for the 730-megawatt generation station, AECOM’s scope included management, design, supply, installation and start-up of the 2×1 natural gas-fired combined cycle facility. During the project, more than 1,000 local craft workers performed the construction with an outstanding safety record.

Alliant Energy started construction on the generating station in spring 2017 after receiving approval from the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin. The completed USD 660 million facility can produce enough power for more than 550,000 homes.

The next step for the project includes constructing a new, integrated solar facility adjacent to the natural gas generating station. The West Riverside solar garden is expected to break ground soon with a planned completion by the end of this year, bringing added benefits to customers. The 6-megawatt DC solar field will offset auxiliary power at the natural gas plant and increase the sustainability and efficiency of the West Riverside Energy Center.
