The Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) in Canada has renewed its operations and maintenance contract with engineering and construction firm SNC-Lavalin.

The scope of the contract includes the provision of operations and maintenance services at GTAA's cogeneration and central utilities plant for an additional five years, with an option to further extend it for two more years.

SNC-Lavalin Infrastructure president Hisham Mahmoud said: "SNC-Lavalin's involvement in this critical cogeneration and central utilities plant showcases our ability to seamlessly integrate engineering, construction and operations and maintenance services into a single high-value package."

"This latest contract renewal is a reflection of SNC-Lavalin's continued efforts to deliver a cost-efficient service."

GTAA's cogeneration and central utilities plant produces 117MW of energy-efficient power and 11,500t of chilling capacity, which is enough to cater to the needs of Toronto's Pearson International Airport.

GTAA airport planning and technical service vice-president Patrick Neville said: "This latest contract renewal is a reflection of SNC-Lavalin's continued efforts to deliver a cost-efficient service that contributes toward the GTAA's overall goals."
