SNC-Lavalin announced that its joint venture with M. Sullivan & Son has been awarded Phase 2 of the Calabogie power plant redevelopment by Ontario Power Generation (OPG).

The contract is valued at over $100 million with work anticipated to start in June 2020 and will take two years.

Plans call for decommissioning the existing 5 MW powerhouse, excavating the forebay and tailrace in line with the hydraulic model, and constructing a new two-unit powerhouse with a capacity of 10.7 MW, enough to power about 10,000 homes.

The Calabogie station was constructed in 1917 and, in September 2018, it was affected by a tornado in the Ottawa-Gatineau region.
