BC Hydro's turbine, generator contractor begins work at Site C

BC Hydro and Power Authority announced April 3 another milestone at its 1,098-MW Site C project as the turbines and generators contractor begins its work at the site.

Voith Hydro Canada secured a $470 million contract to build six custom designed, vertical axis, Francis-style turbines and six generators for Site C.

"Our initial on-site work will include building a facility at the dam site to manufacture the steel structures for the turbines and generators," President and CEO of Voith Hydro Canada Bill Malus said in an April 3 statement.

The development comes on the heels of BC Hydro reaching settlements with the First Nations in British Columbia.

The excavation and foundation preparation to construct the facility will begin this month and complete in August.
