VINCI Wins Contract to Build Storm Sewer in Toronto


VINCI Construction, via its subsidiary Bessac (Soletanche Bachy), specialized in microtunelling, in a consortium with Canadian company EBC, has won the contract to build the Fairbank-Silverthorn Storm Trunk Sewer System for the City of Toronto.

The project, worth C$184 million (approximately €124 million) includes the construction of the main gravity storm trunk sewer, built with a tunnel boring machine designed and manufactured by Bessac. It also comprises the building of 21 access shafts and several other works (sections of local storm sewers by microtunneling, open-trench construction of a storm sewer section, construction of a storm drain outfall for the release of water in the natural environment).
