The Nevada Irrigation District (NID) requires electrical engineering and maintenance support for its various powerhouse facilities as the District takes over tasks previously provided by PG&E. IEC was selected to provide NID with ongoing electrical engineering and staff augmentation services to support the backlog of identified repair and replacement work that is necessary to ensure the powerhouse facility infrastructure remains in working order.
Southern California Edison (SCE) is developing two (2) Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS). One at their Center Peaker Plant and the other at their Grapeland Peaker Plant. As the Engineer of Record for each project, IEC provided detailed engineering services and complete construction packages for the civil/structural, electrical, mechanical, and controls project work. IEC’s scope of work also included permitting, detailed design and engineering, and engineering support during construction. The projects achieved Substantial Completion in December 2016 and are now operational.

IEC is again supporting SMUD’s Energy Research & Development Department (ER&D) to provide support to SMUD in the key areas of renewable generation, transmission, and integration and to help increase the amount of renewable energy in SMUD’s energy portfolio. These efforts will include technical and economic feasibility assessments, promoting and facilitating the development of various renewable technologies, providing expertise to project developers, and partnering with various stakeholders to help implement projects.
Algonquin has retained IEC Corporation to provide ongoing electrical engineering and technical support for its Sanger Generation Facility. Tasks include ISO metering support, CAISO technical support, cost estimating for various equipment upgrades, and other design and consulting work. IEC has provided ongoing support for Algonquin and the Sanger Project over the past 10 years.
IEC was awarded a contract to provide Project Management Services for NCPA Plant Physical Security Projects. NCPA has identified various physical security upgrades at each of their power plants and would like to upgrade or install new security systems. IEC will be responsible for managing and coordinating these projects from the RFP development stage through implementation.
As part of its contract to provide engineering, project management, and construction management services to SMUD for its ongoing capital infrastructure projects, IEC is currently supporting a number of tasks at SMUD hydro facilities and Upper American River Project (UARP) area projects to support SMUD's FERC license requirements. Tasks include Powerhouse fire protection, roof replacement, and physical security upgrades as well as the construction of two weir projects. IEC is also managing roadway improvement projects, canal relining tasks, penstock upgrades, and boat ramp refurbishments.
IEC recently completed feasibility study to evaluate Solar Photovoltaic (PV) and Biogas Storage Integration in SMUD Service Territory. To complete the study, IEC modeled the optimum performance of a hybrid biogas-photovoltaic system and analyzed the hybrid biogas-photovoltaic system to determine whether the hybrid system and the integration of biogas and PV can be implemented elsewhere in the SMUD Region. As part of this task, IEC addressed locational benefits and costs for the proposed project.
OCI Solar brought on IEC Corporation to provide engineering design, procurement and construction services for the Alamo 1 substation. OCI Solar has contracted with an Energy Storage System (ESS) Contractor for installation of a new 1 MW battery storage system at the Alamo 1 substation. The new ESS will tie-in to the existing substation and provide an additional source to the grid. OCI requested IEC to provide engineering design services for modifying the existing substation protection system to incorporate the new ESS system.
SMUD has awarded IEC Corporation with a contract to provide complete engineering services for the auxiliary boiler design at Carson (CVFA) cogeneration facility. In addition, SMUD has tasked IEC with budgetary cost estimating, a study of the LP process steam return for power production, GateCycle modeling and heat rate curves, and boiler piping analysis and cost estimating.
