ATB Riva Calzoni was chosen by BC Hydro, is a Canadian electric utility, as a supplier for the construction of Site C. The 1100 megawatt hydroelectric plant is under construction in Fort St John, along the course of the Peace River, British Columbia.

The company will take charge of the supply of the entire hydromechanical equipment package: from the engineering of the hydro-mechanical parts to their production, from transport to the site to supervision in the final installation and commissioning phase. ATB Riva Calzoni has organized locally to best meet every operational step. A subsidiary has been set up, ATB Riva Calzoni HydroCanada Inc, based in Vancouver, which will have the task of following the hydropower project step by step.

The hydroelectric plant will produce about 5,100 gigawatt hours of electricity every year. This amount of electricity is sufficient to supply 450,000 homes a year. As a third project of the Peace River system, it will obtain considerable advantages in terms of efficiency, exploiting the water already stored in the Williston reservoir.
