Maple Reinders was awarded the project by Trent University to redevelop the Stanley Adamson Generating Station, located on the Otonabee River in Peterborough, Ontario. The powerhouse, originally built in 1921, generates about 40% of the university’s power needs. Maple Reinders’ scope of work included:
Installation of upstream and downstream cofferdams;
Removal of existing turbines and associated generating equipment
Multiple stage concrete placement for turbine equipment, forebays and draft tubes;
Installation of downstream gates systems;
Reconfiguration of the powerhouse;
Installation of auxiliary mechanical and electrical systems;
Installation of sub-station and equipment necessary for interconnection with Peterborough Utilities Inc.;
Repairs to the existing structures as required to provide a service life of 40 years for the rehabilitated plant.
Maple Reinders was contracted to construct a pump station for Metro Vancouver, which at the time was the largest municipal water pump station in the province. The pump station conveys water to the District of Maple Ridge and parts of Surrey and Langley, providing water to more than 2.1 million residents.
