The New York Power Authority has been recognized for superior work practices related to the repair and restoration of the dam face at the Robert Moses Niagara Power Plant by the Western New York Chapter of the American Concrete Institute.

Representing NYPA was construction engineer Marek Kobialka, who also accepted the award on behalf of partners Crane Hogan Structural Systems, BVR Construction, LaFarge North America and Applus RTD.

NYPA said it earned the award for the quality of repair work over a 21,000-square-foot area of the Robert Moses dam face and "innovative practices" conducted in 2013-14.

The 2,525-MW Robert Moses project recently underwent a US$298 million, 15-year upgrade program that added 32 MW to its overall output capacity.

The White Plains-based utility was also recognized by the U.S Environmental Protection Agency for its efforts in on controlling and monitoring greenhouse gas.
