The federal government has narrowed the field of companies vying for a 30-year contract to upgrade and operate the massive system that heats and cools more than 80 buildings in the National Capital Region.
On Friday, Public Services and Procurement Canada said it had prequalified two consortiums to bid on a full request for proposals:
Innovate Energy, made up of Black & McDonald, ENGIE Services, PCL and WSP; and
Rideau Energy Partners, made up of NRG DG Development, Pomerleau and SNC-Lavalin
The federal government uses a district energy system connected to central plants, including the Cliff facility near the Supreme Court, and some 14 kilometres of underground piping to provide heat using steam and cooling with chilled water.
