Aker completes EPC of TransCanada energy facility

Aker Construction, with its joint-venture partner Burns & McDonnell, has successfully completed the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the Halton Hills Generating Facility for TransCanada Energy.

Located in Ontario, Canada, the generating facility is part of the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) initiative to help meet the critical energy and stability needs of the southwest greater Toronto area.

The station provides reliability to support Ontario’s growing renewable energy electricity production from wind and solar, while contributing towards replacing coal-fired power generation.

The 684MW 2×1 combined-cycle natural-gas-fired plant was built on an 80-acre green field site in Halton Hills and created approximately 800 construction jobs.
