Hatch celebrates their one-year anniversary of being in Port Elgin
On July 10, 2017, to celebrate its one-year anniversary, the Hatch Port Elgin office opened its doors to the community. Clients, local government officials, Bruce Power staff, and media attended the event, where Hatch made a donation of $3,000 to the Community Foundation Grey Bruce.
“In the last year, Hatch’s Port Elgin office has grown steadily—so much so that we are planning to continue expanding by hiring locally and moving more of our people up to the Bruce County area.” Says Jim Sarvinis, Managing Director, Power. “We believe it’s important to grow roots in the communities where we work.”
Kevin Kelly, CFO of Bruce Power was present at the open house to sign the latest contract between the two companies; an ongoing professional services agreement allowing Hatch to support continuing operations and life-extension programs. Hatch is currently assisting Bruce Power with the steam generator replacement project, the feeder program, and providing the engineering on some of the major component replacement (MCR) infrastructure buildings.
Amar Jolly, the global director of Nuclear says, “We are pleased to continue growing our relationship with Bruce Power and expand its access to our services. This agreement means Hatch will be working even more closely with Bruce Power staff, integrating our people seamlessly with the Bruce Power team. We expect this contract to have a direct impact on the local economy, with a good portion of the work performed out of our Port Elgin office.”
