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. Aecon is Managing Partner of the consortium
and holds a 30 per cent share of the partnership, which was previously selected as preferred proponent for the project. 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. The project will include the placement of approximately 700,000 cubic meters of mass and reinforced concrete, 34,000 tonnes of rebar, and over 11,000 tonnes of steel. The powerhouse will
contain six generators with a combined capacity of 1,100 megawatts, with corresponding intake structures connected to the powerhouse via 80 m-long 10-m diameter penstocks.
