BESIX Canada, together with its joint venture partner Vancouver Pile Driving (Vanpile), will build an LNG export facility in Kitimat, in the North Coast region of British Columbia, Canada.

The LNG Berth Marine Structure contract was awarded to BESIX Canada and Van Pile by the JGC-Fluor BC LNG Joint Venture (JFJV).

Once completed, the LNG terminal will be maintained by JFJC and operated by LNG Canada, a joint venture between Shell, PETRONAS, PetroChina, Mitsubishi and KOGAS.

“The LNG Berth Marine Structure is the second marine project that BESIX carries out in Canada, once again in cooperation with our local partner and thanks to the proposed innovative design of the BESIX Engineering Department,” said Fabian Boucher, BESIX Canada General Manager.

“We are convinced that JGC-Fluor has made the best possible choice with our JV to meet the specific challenges of this project that we jointly commit to become the ‘safest project on earth.’”

“BESIX has an in-depth expertise in marine works. On each of its sites, BESIX pursues excellence in terms of quality and safety and in reducing its environmental footprint.”
