DRUMMONDVILLE, Que.—Subsidiaries of Quebec’s CVTech Group Inc. have won contracts worth $50.7-million for the construction of a New Jersey solar system and electricity transmission lines in Quebec.

According to the company, its United States-based Riggs Distler & Co., Inc. subsidiary won a trio of contracts south of the border worth $33.7-million, including a $17-million deal to build three ground-mounted solar systems in New Jersey.

The contract will see Riggs Distler build the solar systems—with a total installed capacity of 25 megawatts combined—by the end of the third quarter of this year.

Riggs Distler also won a $8.47-million contract in New Jersey for undisclosed mechanical work on a power generation facility.


A third contract, an $8.25-million master service agreement, will see the company carry out work on a Maryland gas distribution network over three years beginning June 1.

In Quebec, CVTech’s Thirau Ltée subsidiary was awarded a $17-million deal to build two sections of 315-kilovolt electricity transmission lines.

At roughly six kilometres in length each, the lines will feed Hydro-Quebec’s Lanaudière substation in Joliette, Que., and connect the utility’s Blainville, Que., substation to the provincial grid.

Work is set to kick off on that project next month and finish in November.
