Canam Group Inc. : Structal-Bridges Lands Two Major Contracts in Newfoundland and Labrador and Massachussetts

04/25/2013 | 10:27am US/Eastern

(SAINT-GEORGES, QC) - Structal-Bridges, a division of Canam Group Inc. (TSX: CAM), has secured two large contracts totaling close to $60M for the fabrication of the steel structures that will replace the Sir Ambrose Shea Lift Bridge in Placentia, located in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, and the John Greenleaf Whittier Memorial Bridge, which overlooks the Merrimack River between Newburyport and Amesbury in the state of Massachusetts.

Project in Newfoundland and Labrador
In this project, a joint Venture comprised of H.J. O'Connell Construction Ltd. and Vancouver Pile Driving Ltd. awarded Structal-Bridges the contract to fabricate and install various components for the new vertical lift bridge, including the approaches. In all, close to 1,100 tons of steel will be transformed by Structal-Bridges in the scope of this contract. Fabrication is slated to begin in August 2013 at the Canam Group plant in Quebec City.

Project in Massachusetts
Mandated by Walsh Construction Company, this project calls for the fabrication of over 10,000 tons of steel components for the new Whittier Bridge that's being erected as part of the I-95 Improvement Project in Massachusetts. The Canam Group plants in Claremont, New Hampshire, and Point of Rocks, Maryland, will share the fabrication work, which is scheduled to be carried out between August 2013 and April 2015. Deliveries for this project will start in December 2013.

Robin Lapointe, Vice President, Structal-Bridges, commented: "The Whittier Bridge project is our fifth major contract in collaboration with Walsh Construction Company, which is a prime indicator of the relationship of trust that's developed between the two companies. The expertise we've acquired in the installation of complex steel bridges also placed Structal-Bridges in a favorable position to obtain the Placentia bridge project."
