Aecon Group has been awarded two contracts totalling $116 million by East Windsor Cogeneration LP to construct the new 84-megawatt East Windsor Cogeneration Centre (EWCC), a high efficiency gas-fired electric power and steam cogeneration facility located in Windsor, Ontario.
Upon substantial completion, scheduled for September 2009, the EWCC will provide electrical output to Ontario’s electricity market, and will also provide high-pressure and medium-pressure steam to the adjacent facilities of Ford Motor Company of Canada. East Windsor Cogeneration LP is a partnership between Pristine Power Inc. and Fort Chicago Energy Partners L.P.
The EWCC’s steam generation units will be provided by Aecon’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Innovative Steam Technologies (IST). IST will supply two compact Once-Through Steam Generator (OTSG) units for steam production. Aecon Industrial will install the OTSG units as part of the main EPC contract, and IST will provide installation supervision related to their equipment.
