Michels Canada to upgrade 20km pipeline in Vancouver area
Michels Canada has been selected to upgrade another key gas pipeline in the Lower Mainland. FortisBC picked Michels to replace an aging 20-kilometre gas line from Vancouver to Coquitlam, BC. The 60-year-old, 20-inch diameter pipe will be upgraded to a 30-inch pipeline.
Michels will perform the work in densely populated areas, similar to what we did last year when we upgraded a gas line from Surrey to Coquitlam for FortisBC. In both cases, Michels used our comprehensive safety program to ensure the safety of our employees and the public.
Construction will start soon and is scheduled for completion in late 2019. The project is part of the FortisBC Gas Line Upgrade project, which is increasing capacity and reliability of service for natural gas customers in the Vancouver area.
