AMEC joint venture to develop 10-MW solar project for International Power Canada

Greentech Lead America: AMEC, an engineering and project
management company, announced that its joint venture with Black & McDonald
will provide engineering, procurement and construction for a 10 MW solar
photovoltaic plant being developed in Eastern Ontario. International Power
Canada owns the Brockville solar project.

This is the fourth contract the AMEC Black & McDonald
joint venture has received from International Power Canada and the first
utility-scale solar project in Canada.

“Over the past five years, we have built a strong working
relationship with International Power Canada and established a reputation for
the effective delivery of clean energy projects. We look forward to
demonstrating our leading knowledge and expertise in delivering a turnkey
solution for the Brockville project, which is also the first Canadian-based
utility-scale solar project for AMEC,” said Tim Gelbar, president of AMEC’s
Power & Process Americas business.

AMEC’s joint venture will serve as the design-build
contractor undertaking the engineering, construction and performance of the
project. The project will utilize Suntech’s
solar modules.

The Brockville solar project is being developed under
Ontario’s Feed-in Tariff (FIT) Program. The Brockville Solar project will
generate electricity to power 1,700 households annually. The energy generated
by the project will be purchased by Ontario Power Authority under a 20-year
supply contract.

“With Brockville, International Power Canada is
diversifying our technology base and entering a new and exciting business area.
We hope this is the first of many solar projects in our portfolio. We are
pleased that the Brockville project is now under construction and will soon be
providing clean, renewable energy to the province,” said Mike Crawley,
president, International Power Canada.
