BC Hydro, the leading power utility in British Columbia, has pre-qualified an ACCIONA-led consortium (Peace River Hydro Partners 2), to tender the civil works for the generating station and spillways of the 1,100 MW Site C Clean Energy Project.
The scope of the contract includes the civil works associated with the powerhouse, penstocks, spillways and power intakes of the Site C hydroelectric dam on the Peace River in northern British Columbia.
In December 2015, ACCIONA and its Peace River Hydro Partners (PRHP) signed a CAD$1.75 billion contract with BC Hydro for the main civil works, including an earth fill dam, two diversion tunnels and a roller-compacted–concrete foundation for the generating station at Site C.
“With the generating station and spillways civil works procurement, we are looking forward to the opportunity to continue working on one of the largest infrastructure projects in Canada”, says Darren Sokoloski, President and Country Director for ACCIONA Canada.
The generating station and Spillways Civil Works contract will include the processing and production of all aggregates and granular materials required for the works; the placement of approximately 700,000 cubic meters of mass and reinforced concrete for spillways, intakes, penstock encasement and powerhouse substructure; the procurement and construction of six penstocks and the installation of equipment supplied by BC Hydro.
Following the tendering process, BC Hydro is expected to award the new contract during the summer of 2017.
The Site C Clean Energy Project is a hydroelectric dam and generating station under construction in northeast B.C. Once complete in 2024, the project will provide clean, reliable and cost-effective electricity for more than 100 years.
