SHERBROOKE, QC—Structural steel specialty contractor Supermétal has inked two new contracts in Canada aimed at increasing the electricity production capacity of River Harmon and Kipling hydro dams on the Mattagami River in Ontario, as well as the Horizon oil sands complex in Alberta.

In Ontario, Supermétal will fabricate and install structural steel for the third production unit of the Kipling and Harmon River dams; each dam already has two units. Harnessed to the Mattagami River, their capacity will be increased to 235 MW from 156 and 140 MW respectively. In Alberta, Supermétal will build the structural steel supporting the second phase of the Horizon oil sands complex in Fort McMurray, operated by Canadian Natural Resources. This mandate will require the supply of 4,500 tons of structural steel for various buildings to satisfy the production increase of synthetic oil to 250,000 barrels per day from the current 125,000.
