Aecon Energy and its predecessor companies have worked in the nuclear sector since the early 1970’s on a wide variety of projects, from construction of the Bruce ‘B’ heavy water plant to the Darlington Used Fuel Dry Storage project.
Aecon has been consistently recognized for its role as a safety, quality, and innovation leader —striving to develop the full potential of its people by fostering a culture of continuous learning.
Nowhere is Aecon’s mantra of ‘Safety First’ more evident than in the nuclear construction sector. Here, Aecon has successfully executed a variety of projects — EPC construction, maintenance, specialized fabrication of engineered equipment, modules, process piping and custom steel solutions, and pre-assembled skid mounted components — all within a safe, zero-injury work environment.
Aecon nuclear has extensive expertise in EPC / construction projects including refurbishment / plant life extension, nuclear waste management and fabrication of nuclear class components and engineered modules.
Aecon is currently working on definition phase activities for the Darlington Retube and Feeder Replacement Project (RFR), and Turbine Generator Refurbishment (TGR) which are Ontario Power Generation’s most important nuclear projects of Darlington’s refurbishment program.
Aecon previously completed Bruce Power’s Unit 1 & 2 Restart Balance of Plant Project, with more than 1.27 million trades’ hours having been worked, with no lost time injuries.
Aecon also successfully completed one of the biggest nuclear outage projects in North America, OPG’s Pickering Vacuum Building, ahead of schedule.
Aecon maintains a NUC-C nuclear quality management system certified to CSA N285.0, and in compliance with CSA N286.1, CSA N286.3 and CSA N286.4 requirements. Aecon is also ISO 9001:2008 certified and recently received N-Stamp certification from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) for the fabrication of nuclear components for the U.S. and world markets.
By leveraging its Quality pedigree along with having the largest module fabrication capacity in Canada, Aecon has positioned itself as the go-to fabricator in North America in support of new builds and major refurbishments. As evidence, Aecon was recently awarded a major contract to fabricate 24 nuclear class process modules for the AP1000 plants at Vogtle, Georgia and V.C. Summer, South Carolina.
Aecon also has experience working on a variety of projects throughout the world, including the Quito International Airport in Ecuador and the Cross Israel Highway in Tel-Aviv.
Building on nearly 40 years of nuclear experience, Aecon is in a highly competitive position for all contracted work in a nuclear environment.
