Aecon joint venture books latest $350M Bruce Power nuclear retrofit
Aecon Group Inc. and two partners have signed a new agreement for retrofit work at the Bruce Nuclear Generating Station in Tiverton, Ont.
The Canadian contractor and SGT — a partnership consisting of Framatome and United Engineers & Constructors — will share the $350 million contract to replace the steam generators for the nuclear plant’s Units 3 and 4.
The joint venture, known as Steam Generator Replacement Team (SGRT), signed a long-term preferred supplier agreement for the steam generator replacement work with Bruce Power in 2017. It’s currently working to replace Unit 6, and anticipates subsequent awards for three remaining units.
Engineering, planning, the removal of the existing components and the installation of the new steam generators all fall under SGRT’s scope.
The replacement of Unit 6 is scheduled to wrap up this year. Work on Unit 3 and 4 will get underway, respectively, in 2023 and 2025, according to Bruce Power.
