SNC-Lavalin announced that its joint venture with M Sullivan & Son has been awarded Phase 2 of the Calabogie Generating Station Redevelopment by Ontario Power Generation. The cost-reimbursable contract is valued at over $100 million with work anticipated to start in June 2020 and will take two years. This contract is within SNCL Engineering Services, the cornerstone of our strategy moving forward to greater growth and profitability.

The JV scope will be to decommission the existing 5 MW powerhouse, excavate the forebay and tailrace in line with the hydraulic model, and construct a new two-unit powerhouse with a capacity of 10.7 MW, enough to power about 10,000 homes. The award follows the completion of the front end engineering and design phase wherein the JV developed the target cost for the execution phase through a detailed options assessment and finalization of critical designs.

Constructed in 1917, the Calabogie Generating Station produced renewable, low-cost electricity on the Madawaska River. On Sept. 21, 2018, the station was affected by a tornado in the Ottawa-Gatineau region. Prior to this event, the generating station was nearing the end of its operational life.
