Kitimat Deal for BESIX
The Canadian unit of the Belgium-based contractor BESIX has been awarded an LNG berth marine structure deal for the Shell-led LNG Canada project in Kitimat, British Columbia.
BESIX Canada, together with its joint venture partner Vancouver Pile Driving (Vanpile), has been hired by the project’s EPC contractor JGC-Fluor JV.
Works include the construction of a 500-meter-long quay wall, an LNG platform and all associated mooring and berthing structures.
The works also involve the construction of scour protection, roadways, foundations for buildings, electrical works as well as the installation of marine equipment such as automated navigation aids, BESIX said in its statement.
Construction will start in 2019 with the removal of the existing facilities, shoreline protection and current infrastructure.
According to their official announcement, the works will be completed in 2021.
