Nuclear power services contract awarded to Aecon and SNC-Lavalin

Ontario Power Generation Inc. (OPG) has taken another step toward the refurbishment of the 3,500 MW Darlington Nuclear Generating Station.

OPG said it has awarded a two-phase contract to plan for and then replace major components of the four reactors at Darlington. The contract for more than $600 million to a joint venture of SNC-Lavalin Nuclear Inc. and Aecon Construction Group Inc. is one of several that will be awarded for the refurbishment of the facility.

The first phase of the project will involve planning for the removal and replacement of the 480 pressure tubes and calandria tubes, and 960 feeder pipes for each of the station’s four reactors. The second phase would involve the execution of the plan.

This is the first of a number of contracts that will be awarded for the refurbishment which involves the replacement of reactor components and maintenance of station systems that have reached the end of their planned lifespan.
