The value of the contract is approximately CAN$ 48 million. “The units at the Cernavoda plant are rated among the best in Europe and this project is part of an industry-wide upgrade strategy for nuclear plant safety in the event of serious accidents or natural disasters, such as those that occurred at Fukushima in Japan,” says Patrick Lamarre, executive vice-president, SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. “This contract with SNN leverages SNC-Lavalin Nuclear’s expertise in nuclear power plant retrofits and in executing projects with challenging logistics.
