NC-Lavalin, Dragados Canada and Pennecon announced that their General Partnership (GP) has been awarded a construction contract from Husky Energy as part of the company's West White Rose Project in Newfoundland and Labrador.

The GP will build a concrete gravity structure (CGS) for a fixed drilling platform. The CGS, with an overall height of 145m and base diameter of 122m, will require 76,000m3 of concrete in its construction, which will take place in a purpose built dry dock from 2017 to 2021.
Once completed and installed in the White Rose field, the CGS will support a topside module to enable drilling and oil extraction 350km away from the coast of Newfoundland in the Atlantic Ocean.
"We are honoured to be part of such a significant project and are especially pleased to be using our infrastructure skills in the oil and gas industry," said Ian L. Edwards, Infrastructure President, SNC-Lavalin. "Not only are we going to comply with the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Benefits Plan but we truly enjoy working in the province and are excited about the opportunities our contract brings for the province's workers and suppliers," said Edwards.
As part of this GP, SNC-Lavalin and Dragados Canada each hold 40% of the shares, while local company Pennecon Ltd is a 20% partner.
"Dragados Canada is proud to collaborate with its partners and with Husky Energy in this innovative Project, providing our knowledge and skills in the technically complex field of large concrete structures, as well as engaging with Newfoundland and Labrador's workers and suppliers," said Diego Zumaquero, Dragados Canada´s President.
The structure will be built in Argentia, an industrial area on the southwest coast of the island of Newfoundland, before being moved offshore. Work on the project is expected to begin shortly and construction is expected to finish in 2021.
"We are pleased to partner with both SNC-Lavalin and Dragados on this exciting project," said Larry Puddister, P. Eng., Executive Chairman of Pennecon Ltd. "As a Newfoundland and Labrador company, we bring decades of operating history, local knowledge and understanding to this project. We look forward to being a part of such an important venture that reinforces the value of our offshore industry and will significantly contribute to our provincial economy."
