Amec Foster Wheeler joint venture wins contract for long-term waste management facility in Canada

Summary

Major construction contract award for Port Hope Area Initiative, one of Canada’s largest environmental restoration projects

Amec Foster Wheeler, in a joint venture with CB&I, announces today the award of a CAD$86.8 million construction remediation contract by Canadian Nuclear Laboratories to build the Port Granby long-term waste management facility in the municipality of Clarington in Ontario, Canada.

The Port Granby Project is part of the Port Hope Area Initiative, the Canadian federal government’s undertaking for the safe, long-term management of historic low-level radioactive waste in the municipalities of Port Hope and Clarington. It includes relocating historic low-level radioactive waste and marginally contaminated soils from an existing waste management facility on the shoreline of Lake Ontario to a new, state-of-the-art facility, approximately one kilometre north of the current site.

The contract scope involves facility construction, waste excavation, construction of a roadway to permit transportation of the excavated material without using municipal roads, and restoration of the existing and new facility sites. Construction will begin in the latter part of 2015 and will take about five years.

The Port Granby Project is part of the Port Hope Area Initiative (PHAI), a federal government undertaking for the cleanup and safe long-term management of historic low-level radioactive waste in Port Hope and south-east Clarington. The Port Granby Project will relocate approximately 450,000 cubic metres of historic low-level radioactive waste and marginally contaminated soil, located at an existing waste management facility on the shoreline of Lake Ontario, to a new, engineered above ground mound facility to be built approximately one kilometre north of the lake. The engineered facility will isolate the waste from the environment using multi-layered baseliner and cover systems.

 

The Port Granby Project began in 2001, as part of the Port Hope Area initiative, through a legal agreement signed by the Municipality of Port Hope, the Municipality of Clarington and the Government of Canada. In 2012, the government announced an investment of $1.28 billion over 10 years to finish the Port Hope and Port Granby projects.
