John Hart Generating Station, B.C.

Not only the first Public-Private Partnership (P3) hydroelectric project in Canada, but also one of the largest on record – the John Hart Generating Station in Campbell River, British Columbia will provide reliable, clean power for the region. Aecon’s JV is constructing the new water intake, tunnel and water bypass facility, and a new underground generating station.

The wooden penstocks for the old generating station will be replaced by an enormous tunnel, 8.5 metres in diameter and 1.5 kilometres long, that will, at its deepest point, cut through bedrock more than 100 metres below the surface. The tunnel will carry up to 124 cubic metres of water per second; enough to fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool in 20 seconds.

Compared to traditional procurement processes, the P3 is expected to save $138 million over the life of the project and is being widely praised as a unique arrangement that will serve as a model for P3 projects across the country. The new plant will have an increased capacity of 25 per cent and will be able to meet the needs of a population of up to 260,000 people, the anticipated size of the city by the year 2035.

K+S Potash Canada Legacy Project, Sask.

Aecon has been awarded a series of contracts for a large scope of work on the K+S Legacy Project in Bethune, Saskatchewan. Work includes mechanical and process work, structural steel fabrication and installation, as well as concrete piling and foundations. We are proud to have achieved over 3.5 million hours without a lost time injury on this project.

Saskatchewan has a number of firsts on its resume – it produces more wheat, more mustard and more hockey players (per capita) than any other province. But if you are in the agricultural business, there is one Saskatchewan product that outweighs all the others. The province has the largest deposits of potash in the world and produces about a third of the world’s supply – more than 11 million tonnes a year.

Darlington Nuclear Refurbishment Project, Ont.

The Darlington Nuclear Refurbishment project will add $14.9 billion to the provincial economy, as well as 8,800 jobs for the project’s duration. Aecon’s JV has worked on the definition phase of the project for four years, and will now carry out the execution phase of the refurbishment project. Over 200 Aecon employees are involved in this exciting zero-emissions energy project.

This project illustrates Aecon’s industry-leading, highly skilled nuclear and fabrication expertise, which bodes well for Aecon’s ability to leverage our capabilities in the specialized global nuclear market.
