A JV made up of Bam International, JJM Construction (Canada) and Manson Construction (USA) has received the full order to build the new Rio Tinto BC Works Terminal A on behalf of LNG Canada.
The project will consist of a 320m x 60m terminal for the Rio Tinto BC Works, as well as a berth for cargo barges. Both elements will be built on more than 400 steel piles with a concrete deck of approximately 20,000m³.

Costing CAD$135M (£78.6M), the project will extend the existing BC Works Terminal A in exchange for their Terminal B, which handles exports of finished products for Rio Tinto’s ongoing operations.
The location of Terminal B coincides with LNG Canada‘s Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) export terminal in Kitimat, British Columbia, approximately 600 km north-west of Vancouver.

The JV is made of up Bam at 50% and JJM and Manson covering the other 50% and the first phase of construction will take approximately five years. Bam expects to complete their part of the project in Autumn 2020.
Last month Royal Boskalis announced that it had started dredging the LNG export facility.
