Three firms shortlisted for new John Hart generating station on Campbell River
Three firms have been shortlisted to design and construct a replacement for the John Hart generating station on Campbell River in British Columbia.
Elk Falls Energy Partners, Salmon River Hydro Partners and SNC-Lavalin Inc were shortlisted out of eight companies who responded to a request for qualifications posted on BC Bid in March.
A request for proposals has been issued to the three companies and BC Hydro expects to award the contract in summer 2013 with construction to begin soon afterward. The project is scheduled for completion in 2018.
Suppliers and businesses will also be able to meet the teams a year in advance at an open house to be held in Campbell River on July 25th, 2012. To attend, register at the Campbell River Major Projects Portal or via the Vancouver Island Construction Association site.
