Técnicas secures an EPC contract from Suncor
29 November 2019
Técnicas Reunidas has been awarded, in a 50% partnership with Ledcor Group, a contract by Suncor for the engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning and testing for the installation of two assigned MHPS 501JAC gas turbines. The cogeneration units will replace the three petroleum coke-fired boilers at Suncor’s Oil Sands Base Plant, located approximately 25 kilometres north of Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada. The cogeneration facility will provide reliable steam necessary for Suncor´s operations and generate approximately 800 megawatts (MW) of power. The power will be transmitted to the grid, providing reliable, baseload, low-carbon power, reducing the emission intensity of the Alberta electrical grid.
The contract has an approximate value of Euro 350M. The Full Notice to Proceed (FNTP) was released on October 31, 2019, and the facility is expected to be in-service in the H2 of 2023.
The project represents a new step that consolidates TR´s presence in Canada, where it has been executing projects since 2012, and is the second natural gas cogeneration project with Suncor.
