BC Hydro says they’ve chosen the AFDE Partnership as their preferred proponent to move to the next phase of the Site C generating stations and spillways civil works contract.
In a statement, BC Hydro says they’ll work with the preferred proponent to come to terms on a final contract. Once terms are reached, the BC Hydro Board of Directors will vote on the decision, and the contract may be awarded.
The GSS civil works contract is the second largest contract awarded for Site C, which includes delivery of civil works associated with the powerhouse, penstocks, spillways, and power intakes for the mega dam. BC Hydro says they expect the contract to be awarded early next year, with work beginning in the spring.
