VANCOUVER – BC Hydro today announced the four proponent teams that have been shortlisted for the generating station and spillways civil works contract for the Site C Clean Energy Project. The scope of the contract includes the construction of the civil works associated with the powerhouse, penstocks, spillways and power intakes.
The competitive selection process began in May 2016 when the Request for Qualifications (RFQ) was issued on BC Bid. BC Hydro received seven submissions in response to the RFQ. After evaluating those submissions against the criteria outlined in the RFQ, the following four proponent teams were shortlisted:
The proponents have been issued the Request for Proposals (RFP). Following submission and evaluation of the proposals, a preferred proponent will be selected and negotiations to reach a final agreement will begin. Contract award is anticipated in summer 2017.
The fairness monitor, John R. Singleton, Q.C., has reviewed the procurement process and concluded that the RFQ phase was carried out in a fair and transparent manner in accordance with the terms and conditions in the RFQ. Read more about the report of the fairness advisor.
To encourage networking between local, regional and Aboriginal businesses and the proponent teams, contact information for the proponent teams is available online.
The Site C Clean Energy Project is a hydroelectric dam and generating station under construction in northeast B.C. Once complete in 2024, the project will provide clean, reliable and cost-effective electricity for more than 100 years.
