OMAHA, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kiewit Corporation recently formed a new group, Kiewit Power, designed to enhance service offerings in the power sector. Kiewit Power brings together two Kiewit Corporation subsidiaries, which have recently changed their names. Kiewit Industrial Co. is now Kiewit Power Constructors Co., while Bibb and Associates, Inc., is now Kiewit Power Engineers Co.
“The future is bright in the power and energy markets for Kiewit,” said spokesman Kent Grisham. “By bringing a ‘one-stop-shop’ concept to their integrated engineering, procurement, construction and startup service needs, Kiewit is clearly committed to the success of our power customers.”
Kiewit Industrial Co. began its operations in 1951. From its early exposure to mechanical and electrical work, it has expanded to build major power and mechanical process facilities, including nuclear, fossil fuel, geothermal, waste-to-energy and simple and combined-cycle gas turbine facilities.
Founded in 1979, Bibb and Associates, Inc. was acquired by Kiewit in 1998. The company has worked closely with energy industry clients to provide them with complete engineering services unique to each project’s specifications.
“Kiewit Industrial Co. and Bibb and Associates, Inc. have been an integral part of Kiewit for many years, sharing priorities in safety, quality, integrity and value,” Grisham said. “None of that changes. Operationally, everything remains the same for our employees, customers, subcontractors and suppliers.”
