The Innovative Project of the Year - Mayo B Hydro Power Project; Yukon Territory; Yukon Energy
The Innovative Project of the Year for 2015 was awarded to KGS Group for the Mayo B Hydroelectric Enhancement Project located inthe vast Yukon wilderness region of Canada. Project scope called for construction of two new downstream powerhouses and a 300m long intake tunnel to increase hydro electricity capacity generated from the original 1950s installation located further upstream.
Despite the challenges of working in a sub-Arctic climate, and in a highly remote location, the project was delivered on time and on budget by a team comprising owner Yukon Energy with KGS Group as engineer, Kiewit Infrastructure as lead contractor, and Procon Mining and Tunneling for excavation of the SEM tunnel. Golder Associates served as tunnel construction engineer with Boro Lukajic & Associates as special consultant.
