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 customers.
"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."
