Consolidated Edison, East River Repowering Project

Pike provided construction management services for the East River Generating Station, Consolidated Edison’s largest and most significant combined-cycle power station.

The East River Generating Station produces electricity and steam for businesses and residences throughout the New York City area. Within the environment of an operating power facility, the East River Repowering Project involved:

Removal of an existing boiler and non-condensing steam turbine;

Installation of two GE Frame 7FA, 160 megawatt gas turbines, two Vogt-NEM, Inc. heat recovery steam generators, and three Atlas Copco gas compressors;

Installation of over 100,000 linear feet of process pipe;

New mechanical systems including a state-of-the-art water treatment plant that features a 9,000 GPM reverse osmosis system;

Electrical work including installation of 77,000 linear feet of conduit, 15,000 feet of cable tray, 665,000 feet of power and control cable, and 30,000 electrical terminations;

Major structural modifications to the existing buildings and shell.

The new water treatment facility is the largest demineralizing water treatment facility in the world. The powerhouse produces a maximum steam generating capacity totaling approximately three million pounds per hour and a maximum electric capacity of 360 megawatts.
