EDISON, NJ and MISSISAUGA, ON, May 29, 2013 /CNW/ - Maple Reinders
Constructors, Ltd., one of the top 20 construction firms in Canada, and
SunDurance Energy, LLC, a leading solar project delivery company in the
United States, have announced a joint venture, "Maple SunDurance," to
perform design/build work on megawatt-scale solar projects in Canada.
Maple SunDurance will initially focus on the Ontario market for
photovoltaic solar projects under the "Large FIT 2" feed-in tariff
program administered by the Ontario Power Authority. While there is
no exact threshold, Maple SunDurance generally will engage on a
project, or portfolio of projects, in excess of one megawatt (DC) in
capacity. The Ontario Power Authority is expected to open the
large-project window in the near future and Maple SunDurance is poised
to work with developers and investors who want to assure completion of
their projects in a timely, high-quality and cost-effective manner.
"We believe that this partnership is very timely," said Harold Reinders,
Vice President of Maple Reinders. "Project stakeholders have learned
the importance of responsive, efficient and bankable partners for their
projects and we believe Maple SunDurance really answers the call."
The two companies will share expertise, market knowledge, buying power
and deep experience to maximize the value of Maple SunDurance to its
"The synergy between our companies is truly remarkable," said Al
Bucknam, CEO of SunDurance. "From the shared cultural values to the
complementary expertise and experience, we have created a whole that
really is more than the sum of the parts."
