Partnership to engineer, design and build Brockville solar project in Eastern Ontario.
Engineering and project management company, AMEC, and partner, Black & McDonald, has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract by International Power Canada for the Brockville solar project, a 10-megawatt (MW) solar photovoltaic plant being developed in Eastern Ontario.
Under the contract, AMEC’s joint venture will serve as the design-build contractor undertaking the engineering, construction and performance of the project. The solar modules are supplied by Suntech.
The Brockville solar project, located in the township of Elizabethtown-Kitley in Eastern Ontario, is being developed under Ontario’s Feed-in Tariff (FIT) Program.
This is the fourth contract the AMEC Black & McDonald joint venture has received from International Power Canada and the first time the joint venture will work together on a utility-scale solar project in Canada. The AMEC Black & McDonald joint venture has been involved in a number of Canada’s clean energy projects and has executed many of Ontario’s wind power projects on a design-build basis.
