Due to aging infrastructure and population growth, Ontario was in critical need of an additional power supply to serve the growing demand in the Greater Toronto Area. The Goreway Power Station project aimed to address this demand by building a new 875-megawatt, natural gas-fueled power plant, the first major generation facility built in Ontario in more than 25 years. The complex project would require navigating a congested construction site, skilled labor shortages, particularly in welding and rigging.
Supplies electricity to 330,000 homes in the Greater Toronto Area
Air-cooled condenser construction
32,000 linear feet of exhaust-duct and high-pressure pipe welding
Alberici employed an integrated solution that embraced meticulous planning and execution. Under an EPCm contract, Alberici managed all aspects of the project, from engineering and procurement to construction management. This included the installation of three gas turbine generators, one steam turbine, six steam generators, and associated transformers. The team’s comprehensive approach encompassed civil and building services, site preparations, utilities, foundations, mechanical and electrical systems, and controls.
To ensure compliance with environmental regulations, our project team installed temporary detention basins and systems for dewatering and filtration to collect, sample, and test effluents daily. Disturbance procedures and a spill prevention program were developed to safeguard habitats. Stormwater from any area subject to the infiltration of contaminates was considered wastewater and was collected in detention basins for evaluation and treatment.
Through a holistic approach combining technical expertise, environmental responsibility, and experienced project management, our project team successfully delivered enhanced plant efficiency and environmental sustainability to the SaskPower Queen Elizabeth Power Station.
