Teams qualify for Port of Montreal’s Contrecoeur expansion

MONTREAL — The Montreal Port Authority has announced that three companies have qualified for the design and construction of the port’s Contrecoeur container terminal.

The qualified teams are:

  • Ancre Contrecoeur, represented by Dragados Canada, with which AECOM Consultants is associated;
  • CAP Contrecoeur, composed of the companies Eurovia Québec Grands Projets, Janin Atlas, Soletanche Bachy International and VINCI Infrastructure Canada, with which GHD Consultants, COWI North America and CH2M Hill Canada are associated; and
  • Kiewit-Pomerleau, composed of Construction Kiewit and Pomerleau, with which CIMA+, Englobe, Hatch and Solmatech are associated

The RFQ was posted August 4, 2020, on the MERX electronic tendering system. Five bid responses were received and evaluated.

The three qualified teams will be invited to submit a bid through the RFP process for the design and construction of the container terminal.

“The MPA thanks the companies that responded to our RFQ by submitting high quality bids,” said MPA President and CEO Martin Imbleau. “This interest in the future Contrecoeur container terminal shows that we are presenting a diligently prepared project, and that it offers substantial development and outreach prospects for businesses in the construction and infrastructure sector.”

Located in an industrial zone, the Contrecœur land reserve was acquired over 30 years ago by the Montreal Port Authority. By 2024, the Port of Montreal and its private partners will develop a new state-of-the-art container terminal to handle 1.15 million 20-ft equivalent units (TEUs) when completed.
