Ledcor Group has announced that the Ledcor-Haisla Ltd Partnership (LHLP) has been selected for site preparation activities at LNG Canada’s proposed liquefaction facility in Kitimat, British Columbia (B.C.), Canada.
Ledcor has been exploring potential LNG projects in B.C. since 2010. Alongside the Haisla Nation Aboriginal community in Kitimat, the company formed the LHLP with a goal to jointly pursue opportunities in the area. Since then, Ledcor and the Haisla Nation have worked together on numerous successful projects.
LNG Canada has selected LHLP for two scopes of work on its LNG project. First, the partnership was awarded the Little Creek contract in December 2015, which includes mobilisation to site, initial site water management, access road construction, and snow clearing. In February 2016, LHLP was awarded the site preparation contract, which includes grubbing, excavation, and grading of the workforce accommodation centre.
Quentin Huillery, Senior Vice President of Ledcor Constructors, said: “We value our strong partnership with the Haisla Nation, formed on respect, trust, and a willingness to work together for mutual success.”
Haisla Chief Councilor, Ellis Ross, added: “As LNG opportunities present themselves to the Haisla we wanted to ensure benefits for our people beyond a few payments here and there […] Joint ventures such as this one with Ledcor provide our people with training opportunities and employment, and an ability to partner with and learn from leading Canadian companies.”
