Environmental commitment key to winning project
Winning awards and setting records is secondary to the pride Michels Canada feels in using our experience and innovation to build safe pipelines for our customers.
Among projects in 2016, Michels Canada built the 90-kilometre Northern Courier Pipeline in Northern Alberta for TransCanada. The project was named the North American Society for Trenchless Technology Northwest Chapter’s Project of the Year.
The complex project included eight major crossings under large bodies of water and busy roadways. Michels Canada’s expertise with trenchless crossings met all challenges, including the successful completion of the longest horizontal directional drill of a 42-inch pipe in North America. Michels Canada also used the emerging Direct Pipe technology to complete a crossing for the first time in TransCanada’s history.
“At the end of the day, our customers and the public depend on us to complete reliable projects that protect rivers, lakes and the environment in general,” said Darel Malcolmson, Michels Canada Construction Manager. “Our role is to have the personnel, equipment and techniques that make it possible. It is an honor to be recognized for the quality of our work and for our commitment to environmental responsibility.”
