Resident engineer sought for 84-MW Cannelton hydropower project on Ohio River

Owner’s engineer MWH invites applications from engineers to serve as resident engineer during construction of the 84-MW Cannelton hydroelectric project on the Ohio River in Kentucky.

MWH is working with project owner American Municipal Power Inc. to develop six hydroelectric projects at Corps of Engineers navigation dams. (Hydro Review April 2010) Ground was broken in 2009 at Cannelton Locks and Dam. (HydroWorld 8/7/09)

The project includes a reinforced concrete powerhouse with three horizontal bulb-type turbine-generators, intake and tailrace channels, gravity closure structures, and a short transmission line. The general construction contract phase of the project is to begin in August and run for 38 months. Cofferdam and excavation work is nearing completion.

MWH seeks a resident engineer to be its senior representative at the project site, responsible for interface and coordination between the owner, contractor, and regulators. The resident engineer is to be responsible for managing activities of MWH site staff, including sub-consultants, during construction and project start up.

Qualifications include a civil engineering degree or demonstrated equivalent experience and more than 20 years of engineering and construction experience on large civil works projects, preferably involving construction of dams, reinforced concrete water-retaining structures, and installation of power plant equipment.
