Aecon wins contract to build solar power projects in Canada

Northland Power Inc. and Aecon Group Inc. said Miwel Construction Ltd., Aecon’s wholly-owned subsidiary, has been awarded a contract to construct six 10 MW solar photovoltaic (PV) generation projects in Ontario.

Each of the six projects will be constructed on about 85 acres of land, and will consist of over 40,000 PV solar modules mounted on fixed structural supports. The projects will sell the electricity under Ontario’s renewable energy Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) program and will use Ontario-made equipment and local Ontario labor.

Work on the sites has begun, with completion of all six sites expected in 2013.
