Spain’s ACS said Monday it won a contract to build two hydroelectric power plants in northern Ontario, Canada, for 76.5 million euros (about $102 million).

The contract, which was won by ACS’s Dragados Canada unit, covers construction of the White River project, which includes two hydroelectric power plants located 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) apart.

The power plants have two turbines each, providing total installed generating capacity of 19 MW, ACS said.

Dragados Canada will build the two dams and related infrastructure, including access roads and a 21-kilometer (13-mile) transmission line connecting the power plants to the grid, ACS said.

The project is to be completed in 20 months, the company said.
