WCN Editorial Team 27 Jul 2016 NORTH AMERICA ENERGY & UTILITIES

A joint venture between Kenny Construction and Obayashi has secured a $279m contract to build the South Hartford Conveyance and Storage Tunnel (SHCST) in Hartford, Connecticut.

Under the contract, awarded by The Metropolitan District, the joint venture will be responsible for the construction of a four-mile long, 18ft-diameter lined tunnel, launch shaft, retrieval shaft, pump station excavation shaft, seven drop shafts, seven adits with de-aeration chambers, and an odour-control building at the retrieval shaft.

Granite Construction, the parent company of wholly-owned subsidiary Kenny Construction, said that the SHCST will convey and store wastewater from portions of South Hartford and West Hartford, and minimise sewer overflows into the local Connecticut River and Long Island Sound during major storm events.

The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Clean Water Fund has provided financing for the project.

Construction is set to start in August 2016 and is scheduled to be completed in late 2020.
