A new construction contract has been awarded by Husky Energy as part of the West White Rose Project.
SNC-Lavalin, Dragados Canada and Pennecon’s General Partnership was awarded the contract for a concrete gravity structure for a fixed drilling platform.
The CGS with an overall height of 145 metres and base diameter of 122 meters, will require 76,000 meters of concrete in its construction, which will take place in a purpose-built dry dock.
The construction period will run from 2017 to 2021.
Once completed and installing in the White Rose field, the CGS will support a topside module 350 km offshore.
