Surplus materials and equipment assets
BC Hydro's surplus material and equipment assets are sold or disposed of by the Investment Recovery Department. Electrical system assets are generally sold via public tender, whether they are useable or sold as scrap metals.
All Public Tenders are advertised on BC Bid.
General system support assets (e.g., vehicles, computers, tools, furniture) that have been determined suitable for public sale are sold externally through public sale tenders, utilizing third party vendors:
- Light and Medium Duty vehicles are sold using BC Auction
- Heavy Duty vehicles are sold using Ritchie Brothers Auction
- Miscellaneous Cash and Carry Sales are sold using Asset Investment Recovery
