SNC-Lavalin (TSX: SNC) is pleased to announce that its joint venture (JV) with Aecon Group has been awarded two multimillion-dollar contracts by Ontario Power Generation (OPG) for nuclear services at the Darlington Nuclear Generating Station in Ontario, Canada.

The first contract, valued at $265 million, is for the refurbishment of all four 935-megawatt steam turbine generators at the station, along with overhauls of the generators and moisture separator re-heaters, condenser repairs and implementation of new controls systems. Under this contract, the work is split 40% to SNC-Lavalin and 60% to Aecon. Work has already begun and is forecast to be completed in 2025.

The second contract is for the engineering, procurement and construction of the Retube Waste Processing Building. Valued at $127 million, the work is split 50% to SNC-Lavalin and 50% to Aecon and is expected to be complete in 2017.

“We are pleased to work closely with OPG to extend the life of one of Canada’s largest nuclear generating stations,” said Preston Swafford, Chief Nuclear Officer & Executive Vice-President, Nuclear, SNC-Lavalin. “Our nuclear capabilities ensure that the Candu nuclear reactors will continue to provide safe, reliable, affordable and CO2-free energy to Ontario for up to another 30 years.”

In January 2016, the JV was awarded a $2.75 billion contract to carry out the execution phase of its Retube and Feeder Replacement project for OPG’s Darlington Nuclear Generating Station Refurbishment Program.
