The Caribou Falls Block Dam 2 Reconstruction Project

Ontario Power Generation retained KGS Group to design and supervise the reconstruction of the Caribou Falls Generating Station Block Dam 2 which sustained unexpected slope movements after 60 years of operation. Advanced techniques, innovative materials and sound engineering judgement were applied to design and construct a new earthfill dam. The design integrated constructability, risk mitigation and schedule saving strategies at the planning level. The dam and generation capacity were restored within budget and schedule, while preserving the pristine natural surroundings.
