Teshmont Consultants in Winnipeg have been selected by Atlantic Grid Development to be the owner’s engineer for the Atlantic Wind Connection Project. The project involves developing an offshore high voltage direct current (HVDC) undersea cable transmission backbone. It will facilitate the connection of up to 6,000 MW of offshore wind generated along the eastern seaboard of the United States.

Stantec’s Ottawa office has been awarded a standing offer to conduct Phase II environmental site and risk assessments and related work over the next three years for the National Research Council of Canada. The studies will involve drilling and obtaining over 500 soil and groundwater samples at over 200 locations from St. John’s, Newfoundland to Victoria, B.C.

SNC-Lavalin has received approval to implement the Phase I of Rio Tinto Alcan’s AP60 project in Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean, Quebec. The project is a 50/50 joint venture with Hatch and involves project management, engineering, procurement, construction management and pre-commissioning. Rio Tinto Alcan has approved $758 million to complete the first phase of the aluminum smelting plant, which will be able to produce 60,000 tonnes per year.
