The construction works have already started and BAM expects to complete the project in 2020. The project is worth €95 million, while BAM announced this contract in October 2017, ahead of final confirmation by LNG Canada.
LNG Canada has agreed to extend the current 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 is the same with LNG Canada's LNG export terminal in Kitimat, British Columbia.
The project will incorporate a 320 x 60 metre terminal for the Rio Tinto BC Works, and a berth for cargo barges. These elements will be constructed on more than 400 steel piles with a concrete deck of about 20,000 m3.
LNG Canada is responsible for designing, building and operating the LNG Canada export terminal. The first phase of construction will last about five years.
