EMCOR Group Subsidiary Awarded Contracts For Bruce Nuclear Generator Station

by Staff Writers
Norwalk CT (SPX) Apr 04, 2009
EMCOR Group has reported that as previously noted on its 2/26/09 Fourth Quarter Earnings Call, its Comstock Canada subsidiary has received contracts from Bruce Power in connection with a major refurbishment of nuclear generators at the Bruce A Power Plant in Tiverton, Ontario.

Comstock Canada will be responsible for providing mechanical and electrical construction services supporting the refurbishment of the facility's four 900 MW class CANDU type nuclear reactor units.

The scope of work involves low-pressure service water and high-pressure recirculation water pipe replacement and flushing, in addition to the filed execution of the valve replacement program.

Bruce Power is Canada's first private nuclear generator. The 2,300-acre site houses the Bruce A and B generating stations, each of which holds four CANDU reactors.

Six of those nuclear units are currently operational and combined produce more than 4,700 megawatts, enough to power 20 percent of the hospitals, homes and schools in Ontario.

"Comstock has had a significant and ongoing relationship with Bruce Power since we performed the removal and replacement of steam generators on Units 1 and 2 at its nuclear power generating facility, and then continued with activities in support of that facility," stated Geoff Birkbeck, CEO of Comstock Canada.

"We are extremely pleased to be further expanding our relationship with Bruce Power and working on yet another highly technical project so important to Canada's future. "
