SNC-Lavalin and its partner, Genoa-based Ansaldo Energia, are pleased to announce that they have been awarded a contract by the Société tunisienne de l’éléctricité et de gaz (STEG) to design and construct a 420 MW gas-powered combined cycle thermal power plant at Sousse, Tunisia.

Valued at CAN$340 million, the contract involves a complete power plant to be located within an existing power complex. SNC-Lavalin is responsible for the engineering and the balance of plant work, which includes construction of the power block, gas and water treatment facilities, compressed air works and installation of the power equipment. Ansaldo Engeria will supply the equipment for the power block, and is responsible for its maintenance for a period of 12 years.

“We are extremely happy with this important contract, and look forward to using it as the foundation for building a strong and long-term relationship with a client as prestigious as STEG,” said Riadh Ben Aïssa, Executive Vice-President, SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. “We are eager to begin work and to integrate our own technical expertise in the thermal power sector with Tunisia’s extensive local expertise as much as possible as we work towards completing this project.”

Work on the new thermal power plant will begin before the end of the year, with completion expected 30 months later.
