Aecon Energy offers a full suite of services to energy suppliers, providing solutions to the oil and gas, nuclear, cogeneration and renewable sectors. Aecon Energy’s offerings include pipe fabrication, module assembly, construction of refineries and upgrader facilities, oil extraction, gas plants, and pumping and compressor stations.
Aecon Energy has proven expertise and capabilities and its clients are some of Canada’s largest energy suppliers who hire Aecon with the confidence that their projects will be completed to the highest standards.
In 2012, Aecon was awarded the prestigious N-Stamp accreditation by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. The N-Stamp is the internationally recognized U.S. industry standard in quality assurance for the construction, inspection and maintenance of nuclear facilities.
Aecon is currently designing and constructing the biomass conversion project for Ontario Power Generation’s Atikokan Generating Station, one of the largest biomass plants in North America, located west of Thunder Bay, Ontario.
Aecon is part of a joint venture project with Somerville contracted to build an approximately $730 million, 560-kilometre expansion of the Cold Lake and Polaris pipelines and related facilities in northern Alberta.
Aecon was awarded a $600 million contract, as part of a 50-50 joint venture, for the Refurbishment of four CANDU reactors at Darlington Nuclear Generating Station located east of Toronto. The contract covers the "Definition Phase" scope and includes process definition, component and tooling procurement, design and construction of full scale mock-up and training facilities, and the training of the construction workforce. The full scope of the multi-billion dollar Retube and Feeder Replacement project at the Darlington Nuclear Generating Station involves the replacement of major reactor core components and is scheduled to be completed by 2024.
Aecon teams are working on two contracts at ConocoPhillips’ Surmont 2 site in Alberta. The first contract involves pipe fabrication and assembly of 99 well pad modules and the second contract includes pipe spool fabrication.
Aecon’s expertise in nuclear construction spans the last four decades. At Bruce Power’s Bruce 'A' Nuclear Power Generation Station in Tiverton, Ontario, another 50-50 Aecon joint venture successfully participated in the refurbishment of the first two nuclear units. The scope included the provision of a wide variety of services involving digital plant computer control display upgrades, rehabilitation of primary heat transport system cooling water pumps, replacement of 96,000 terminal blocks on each reactor, condenser retubing and installation of new relief valves and pressure regulators.
Aecon completed mechanical and piping work and re-vamped the existing Consumers’ Co-operative Refinery in Regina, Saskatchewan. The work was required to accommodate a new upgrader expansion.
41% Infrastructure ($1.215 Billion)
35% Energy ($1.019 Million)
23% Mining ($677 Million)
1% Concessions ($42 Million)
Total ($2.947 Billion)
Aecon Energy has a broad range of capabilities unmatched in Canada. According to the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, demand for energy is expected to double in Canada by 2050. Aecon Energy is poised to capitalize on the billions of investment dollars required to update and expand Canada’s generation, transmission, and distribution systems.
