The company under the contract will construct electricity transmission and distribution lines in the province of Quebec, Canada.

CVTech president and chief executive officer André Laramée said, “Quebec is investing like never before in its electrical infrastructures and we are favourably positioned to capitalize on all business opportunities that may arise in this sector.”

Thirau, under the first $6.3m contract, will construct a 34.5 kilovolt (kV), 33km overhead distribution network to supply electricity to the Romaine III camp and completed the contract by the end of October 2012.

As per the terms of the second $7.8m contract the company will build a 230-kV, double-circuit steel line for the addition of a second power supply to the Francheville substation and the dismantling of two circuits and completed the work in 12 months time.

The company is expected to start work on both the contracts in a few days.
