Cancarb Completes Sixth Unit Expansion
February 24, 2021
“The project was planned, constructed and commissioned safely utilizing over 50 different contractor groups. This amounted to over 110,000 manhours of labor,” commented Jerimy Chisholm, Project Manager. “The construction was completed without any serious injuries nor incidents, during a pandemic,” added Chisholm.
The project averaged 40 contractors on site each day during construction, most of which occurred under restricted conditions to prevent transmission of the COVID-19 virus. The majority of work was completed utilizing local contractors, with much of the specialized equipment, structural steel and piping being fabricated locally.
“The new unit provides Cancarb with an additional 9,000 MT of capacity to serve our global customer base and gives us significant operational flexibility to maintain our other five units while pursuing new growth,” said Chisholm.
