We are happy to announce that JNE Welding will be providing tanks to Burns & McDonnell for the new SaskPower Great Plains Power Station in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. Burns & McDonnell is leading construction of this project, with their local partners PCL and Allan Construction.
Engineering and procurement activities are already underway, and fabrication work is expected to start in our shop in Saskatoon in Q3 of 2021. Our field construction partner, Canadian Tank & Vessel is expected to mobilize to site to install the two shop fabricated tanks and begin construction of the third tank in Q2 of 2022. Field activities are expected to be complete in Q3 of 2022.
The combined strength of JNE Welding includes a local workforce comprised of fabricators, welders and project management professional as well as a number of local contractors and other suppliers. Additionally, benefits from this project spend will accrue to JNE’s ownership group which includes Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation and English River First Nation. By contracting JNE for this scope, Burns & McDonnell and SaskPower are delivering on their commitment to maximize local engagement in the construction of this new generation facility in Moose Jaw.
This scope of work is an investment by SaskPower and Burns & McDonnell, providing jobs that support more than 50 families in the province during the execution of work in the shop and field.
As work progresses, updates will be posted to our social channels.
