SNC-Lavalin Power Ontario has a $757-million contract to design and build an 880-MW combined cycle thermal power plant in Brampton, northwest of Toronto.
The Goreway plant is being developed by Sithe Global Power Goreway ULC, with SNC-Lavalin carrying out all engineering, procurement and construction. The plant will be the largest of its kind ever constructed in Canada, and among the most efficient, designed to capture and recycle its own exhaust heat.
Work on the plant is under way, with the first phase scheduled for commercial operation in June 2007.
Klaus Triendl, executive vice president in charge of worldwide power operations with SNC-Lavalin Group, said, “This contract reflects our commitment to Ontario, where we have over 2,000 employees … We will continue to provide EPC power services to the province, whether the need is for thermal, nuclear or hydro projects.
SNC-Lavalin also announced recently that it is selling its arms manufacturing subsidiary, SNC Technologies, to General Dynamics.
