Trans Mountain Marks the Start of Pipeline Construction
Expansion Project pipe is on the ground in Alberta. Trans Mountain’s CEO Ian Anderson was joined by Hon. Seamus O’Regan, Minister of Natural Resources, Government of Canada, Hon. Sonya Savage, Minister of Energy, Government of Alberta and local government representatives in Acheson, Alberta for an event to mark the start of pipeline construction for the Trans Mountain Expansion Project.
“Getting shovels in the ground in Alberta and kicking off pipeline construction is a pivotal moment for Trans Mountain,” said Ian Anderson, President and CEO of Trans Mountain.
“We are proud of the Project we have designed and the innovative measures we are implementing that demonstrate the kind of rigour and detail that will go into every stage of this Project to mitigate risks, respect the rights of those directly affected and operate safely.”
Trans Mountain officially re-started construction on the Trans Mountain Expansion Project on August 22, 2019, with work underway at the Westridge Marine Terminal, Burnaby Terminal and at pump stations in Alberta. The work includes site preparation activities, in-water construction of new shipping berths, foreshore extension work and facility upgrades. Construction is expected to begin shortly in Spread 2 (Yellowhead), as crews are finishing up pre-construction activities and environmental surveys in that area.
As of October 31, 2019, close to six million person hours have been spent on the Project. Trans Mountain has received more than half of the pipe needed for construction and are staging it at storage yards along the route. As of September 30, 2019, Trans Mountain and our contractors have hired more than 2,200 people for the Project, including Indigenous, local and regional employees. This workforce includes heavy equipment operators, trades people, environment and safety compliance roles, engineers, construction managers and administration staff.
