Aecon Group Inc. (TSX: ARE) today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Innovative Steam Technologies (IST), has been awarded two contracts valued at over $20 million to supply its Once-Through Steam Generator units to Nova Scotia Power Incorporated and Holmen Paper’s Peninsular Cogeneration in Spain.

Under the terms of the first contract, IST will design and supply two OTSG units to the Tufts Cove Thermal Generating Station in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. The units are scheduled for an April 2010 delivery.

The contract is based on the design and supply of two OTSGs which will recover waste heat from two existing 46 megawatt gas turbines at the Tufts Cove Generating Station. The OTSG units will help Nova Scotia Power improve the fuel efficiency and increase the power output of the facility, which generates electricity for the Dartmouth and Halifax region in Nova Scotia.

“This is IST’s first project in Atlantic Canada,” said Bob Dautovich, President of IST. “We have been very focused on expanding our services and developing relationships with new clients in this part of Canada, so this award is a very exciting milestone for IST.”

Under the terms of the second contract, IST will design and supply one OTSG unit to Peninsular Cogeneration, located at a paper mill in Madrid, Spain and co-owned by Holmen Paper and Iberdrola’s Energy Works. This is IST’s sixth unit in Spain, and it is scheduled for a November 2009 delivery. The OTSG unit for Holmen Paper will be integrated into the existing cogeneration facility to work with the gas turbine and boiler currently in place.
