Go-ahead given for $337m tunnel at BC power station

A joint venture led by Tutor Perini subsidiary Frontier-Kemper Constructors has been given the go-ahead for a CA$337m project to build the final section of tunnel at a power station in British Columbia.

Frontier-Kemper has a 60% share in the joint venture with Aecon Group for the Rio Tinto project at the Kemano Generating Station. The work involves construction of the remaining 7.6km section of a 16km second tunnel at the plant.

The project’s scope of work includes the excavation and boring of new tunnel segments, tunnel lining, rehabilitation of existing underground and surface excavations and installation of intake gates and other related structures.

Design work is progressing, with site activities start to start towards the end of the first quarter of 2018. The project is expected to reach completion in the third quarter of 2020.
