Completed Projects/Testimonials

Forrest Kerr Hydroelectric Project

BV Electric is proud to have been Forrest Kerr’s primary electrical contractor from the start of construction in 2010 until the end of commissioning in the summer of 2014. BV Electric’s contributions at Forrest Kerr include the design, layout, and installation of a complete electrical system for a 400 man construction camp. The camp includes two 450KW, one 500KW and one 600V generators. The camp also has waste water and water treatment equipment, a modular kitchen and connecting dorms, a fuel farm, and a propane delivery system. With all electrical infrastructure energized for the camp, BV Electric then managed the complete installation of all electrical systems associated with Forrest Kerr’s Switchyard, Powerhouse, and Intake. The 725 million dollar project was successfully commissioned in July of 2014, on time and budget. Clean Energy BC has recognized Forest Kerr as the Project of the Year.

In addition, Clean Energy BC has selected Forest Kerr as the 2014 winner of their prestigious award for Project Excellence.
Long Lake Hydroelectric Project

This project consisted of the supply and installation of a complete electrical installation for a 250 man camp including dorms, kitchen, offices and recreation facilities. The main power source was from BC Hydro and included an 800 amp 120/208 volt distribution to the camp equipment.

BV Electric also provided a complete generation container with two new 36KW Kubota Generators.BV Electric completed the project by providing all the technical service for the powerhouse as well.
McLymont Creek Hydroelectric Project

Located in British Columbia, approximately 1,000 kilometres (km) northwest of Vancouver, the proposed McLymont Creek Project is a run-of-river hydroelectric facility with a targeted output of 66 megawatts (MW).

The project will capture the energy produced by the natural flow and elevation drop of the creek to produce and deliver clean, renewable power to BC Hydro through the Forrest Kerr 287-kV transmission system to the proposed BC Hydro Northwest Transmission Line (NTL) substation at Bob Quinn. All power produced will be sold to BC Hydro for distribution throughout the Provincial power grid.

The project will contribute to the Province of British Columbia’s goal to achieve energy self-sufficiency by 2016. The project will also help the Province meet its clean energy needs in an environmentally and socially responsible manner by offsetting the use of electricity generated from fossil fuels.

On a national and global scale, the project will provide a clean, renewable energy source that will help meet Canada’s commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

As part of the continuation of the Forest Kerr project BV Electric will be instrumental in servicing this Hydroelectric project.
