Flatiron, one of the largest infrastructure contractors in North America, together with partners Aecon Group Inc., Dragados Canada, Inc. and EBC Inc. (AFDE Partnership) has signed the contract with BC Hydro for the Site C Generating Station and Spillways (GSS) Civil Works.
Valued at $1.6 billion (CAD), the GSS Civil Works is one of the largest contracts to be awarded for the Site C Project—a hydroelectric dam and generating station under construction on the Peace River in northeast British Columbia. AFDE Partnership’s scope of work includes the delivery of civil works associated with the powerhouse, penstocks, spillways and power intakes, plus related ancillary construction work.
Construction on this large scale Canadian project is expected to begin spring of 2018 and wrap-up in early 2023. At the peak of construction in 2021, the partnership estimates that approximately 1,600 people will be employed in support of the GSS civil works. The AFDE Partnership will work with local, regional, and indigenous businesses on supplier and subcontracting opportunities.
