The Champlain Hudson Power Express (CHPE) is an innovative renewable power transmission project that will deliver REAL. CLEAN. POWER. to New York. The project will play a key role in the state’s energy transformation, lowering greenhouse gas emissions, creating jobs, and generating billions of dollars in new investment in New York’s economy while also delivering low-cost renewable energy to New York state.
Now proceeding into construction, CHPE is the most powerful project you will never see. It is now supplementing its core team with well driven individuals to ensure that it successfully delivers on its contracted obligation to provide clean energy, resiliency, and environmental responsibility to New York by mid-2026.
Two five-inch-diameter cables will be placed underwater or underground and run 338 miles from the U.S.-Canadian border, south through Lake Champlain, along and under the Hudson River, and eventually ending at a converter station that will be built in Astoria, Queens. The line will deliver 1,250 MW of renewable, reliable, low-cost power to New York City. CHPE’s route has been carefully designed to minimize its impact on the environment. Burying the line within the waterways, existing roads, and railroad rights of way will keep it out of sight and protect it from extreme weather.
Working collaboratively out of its NYC and Albany offices, the CHPE team is looking to add to its team a Director of Collocated Utilities Coordination. Reporting to the VP of Project Services, this team member will be responsible for leadership, coordination, and overall management of CHPE’s day to day interaction with upland and marine collocated infrastructure stakeholders. Key responsibilities will involve being the team lead providing key technical and managerial interface between the CHPE design and construction teams to ensure that the collocation requirements are fully understood and are reflected into the ongoing design and construction planning for the project. This individual will work with the project team to ensure that all needed agreements and approvals are obtained from the collocated utilities stakeholders commensurate with the established project delivery schedule.
The individual will provide technical and supervisory guidance to applicable team members and will work with CHPE’s engineers and contractors to ensure that applicable design plans and profiles are in conformance with collocated utility industry standards and specifications. The work requires skill in computer-aided design, the ability to manage multiple workstreams/design packages simultaneously, and the ability to effectively communicate orally and in writing. The individual will have the ability to exercise considerable judgement and independence of action including contacts with utilities, contractors, and consultants.
