Aecon gets certificate

The Cambridge, Ont.-based industrial division of Aecon Group Inc. has received its nuclear certificate of authorization from the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA).

An audit of Aecon’s industrial fabrication plant facility and field site last year resulted in certificates of authorization being awarded by the TSSA.

The authorization allows Aecon to work on containment and pressure retaining systems for nuclear power plants.

“Our nuclear certification is a significant and important milestone,” said John Beck, Aecon chairman and CEO “While there may be other nuclear-certified organizations in Canada, there aren’t many with certified fabrication plant facilities that can provide this level of service.”

“This authorization opens a whole new and rapidly expanding market for Aecon.”

The certificates allow Aecon to perform work on all classes of parts and piping systems, both shop assembly and field installation of welded and non-welded components and fabricated assemblies.

“This is a natural evolution of Aecon’s history in the Candu nuclear power field that spans over 32 years, starting with a significant role in the original construction of the Bruce Nuclear Generating Station,” said Paul Koenderman, executive vice president and CEO of the Aecon Industrial Group of companies.

Aecon Group Inc. is Canada’s largest publicly traded construction and infrastructure development company.
