Canada-based Maple Reinders Constructors Ltd. and New Jersey-based SunDurance Energy LLC have formed Maple SunDurance, a joint venture to perform design/build work on megawatt-scale solar projects in Canada.
The companies say Maple SunDurance will initially focus on the Ontario market for photovoltaic solar projects under the ‘Large FIT 2’ feed-in tariff (FIT) program administered by the Ontario Power Authority. The utility is expected to open bidding on projects in the near future.
‘We believe that this partnership is very timely,’ says 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.’
