SunMine receives the National Award

SunMine received the prestigious National Award for an Engineering Project or Achievement from Engineers Canada.

The National Award for an Engineering Project or Achievement bestows distinction on a team of engineers or for an outstanding engineering project or achievement that has had a significant positive impact on society and/or industry and/or engineering, and recognizes engineering achievements involving Canadian engineers.

The previous years’ recipients were: the new Skytrain lines in Vancouver , the new Port Mann Bridge over the Fraser River, the new Metro in Calgary and a large port in New Brunswick.
That SunMine receives the same recognition as these outstanding projects is an honour, a big achievement and a sign of the time.
In addition to the National Award, since implementation, SunMine received a number of awards:
  • Association of Professional Engineers of BC (APEGBC) sustainability award (Michel de Spot, .Eng.  – EcoSmart)
  • Clean Energy BC (CEBC), 2015 Community of the Year Award (City of Kimberley)
  • Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM)  Community Excellence Award 2015 (City of Kimberley)
