SNC-Lavalin, Dragados, Pennecon awarded construction contract for West White Rose


MONTREAL -- SNC-Lavalin, Dragados Canada and Pennecon Ltd. are pleased to announce 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 145 m and base diameter of 122 m, will require 76,000 m3 of concrete in its construction, which will take place in a purpose built dry dock from 2017 to 2021. Once completed and installed at White Rose field, the CGS will support a topside module to enable drilling and oil extraction 350 km away from the coast of Newfoundland in the Atlantic Ocean.

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.

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.
