The Zellstoff Celgar Green Energy Project

Castlegar, B.C


The Zellstoff Celgar, Green Energy Project mechanical installation was awarded to JVD Installations Inc in March 2010. The project initially consisted of the mechanical installation of a 48MW Shin Nippon Condensing Turbine, Brush Generator and all ancillary piping and equipment installations. Upon mobilization to site for mechanical installation JVDII was also awarded the electrical installation package consisting of the installation of all high voltage cables, control and power cabling, switch gear, power control and DCS installations, and all field terminations associated with the Turbine/Generator and ancillary equipment. The Turbine started commissioning in September 2010 and to date has met all of its regulatory requirements for output and has met or exceeded the stringent mechanical quality parameters set out by Shin Nippon Turbines and Brush Generators.

Construction Management for BioEnergy Building and Infrastructure Loop

Prince George, British Columbia


Construction Management for the construction of two separate but integrated projects. One of the projects, originally a LEED Gold BioEnergy Building has now achieved LEED Platinum certification. The BioEnergy Building houses the bioenergy equipment supplied by Nexterra. Nexterra’s equipment converts wood waste into syngas burned in the boilers that are used to heat the entire UNBC facility. The anticipated natural gas use reduction from existing levels is 80%. The second project is the Infrastructure Loop upgrade to existing UNBC hot and cold water heating and cooling lines. Infrastructure Loop work includes upgrade of existing pvc hot and cold water heating and cooling lines to carbon steel throughout the University. Infrastructure work includes both exterior and interior works. Responsible for all budgeting, tendering, procurement and construction to completion. Work started as Construction Management and then converts to guarantee lump sum contract.
