The Calvert County Board of County Commissioners has announced the unveiling of a new website to help local businesses participate in the proposed major expansion of the Dominion Cove Point LNG facility in Lusby, Maryland. If approved, the project is expected to bring 3000 jobs to Maryland at the peak of construction and expects to be one of the largest construction projects in Maryland’s history. Construction is expected to begin in 2014 with export operations in 2017.
Dominion has hired IHI/Kiewit Cove Point, a joint venture of IHI E&C and Kiewit Energy Company, as its engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor. IHI/Kiewit Cove Point will be responsible for the EPC of the new facility. IHI/Kiewit will be providing many opportunities to local, diverse and/or small businesses in the region.
The website, www.1covepoint.com, was created by IHI/Kiewit for suppliers, subcontractors, construction product retailers and local businesses that would like the opportunity to work with IHI/Kiewit on the project. It also includes information about the status of the project and contract awards. The new website is currently accepting registration for material suppliers, subcontractors, and service providers that have an interest in being considered for the various opportunities at the Cove Point project.
