Aker Solutions Successfully Completes Major Gas Fired Power Project for TransCanada in North America


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

Located in Ontario, Canada, this 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, whilst contributing towards replacing coal-fired power generation.

The 684 Megawatt 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. Aker Solutions’ subsidiary, Aker Construction Canada Ltd., performed construction, construction management, portions of procurement and commissioning support for the project. Burns & McDonnell Canada Ltd. completed project design, procured engineered equipment, provided technical assistance for construction and executed the commissioning and startup of the facility. The joint venture project team mobilised in October 2007.
