Lorneville and Saint John Industrial Parks combine efforts to serve marine industries


Saint John, NB – December 9, 2022

Lorneville and Saint John Industrial Parks are joining forces to promote a unique combination of services and facilities to the shipbuilding, industrial marine, and emerging marine renewables sectors. Working together, we can offer ISO 9001 fabrication and assembly capabilities, direct access to marine barge transportation, over 10 hectares of developed land suitable for laydown and staging, and proximity to a globally connected container port.    

With the momentum generated by the National Shipbuilding Strategy, we are identifying opportunities to assemble oversized components for the shipbuilding programs within Atlantic Canada that may otherwise require lengthy overseas shipping or allocation of scarce shipyard space for onsite assembly. 

Likewise, with marine renewable technologies, onshore assembly and staging of subcomponents can be ideally serviced from our location, which is less than 600 km from Vineyard Wind, North America’s first commercial-scale offshore wind project, and within 150 km of the FORCE development sites for tidal energy utilizing the Bay of Fundy tides.

About Spruce Lake Barge Terminal  (Saint John Industrial Parks)

Operated by Saint John Industrial Parks, the Spruce Lake Barge Facility can accommodate a variety of barge sizes up to 6.4m drafts, capable of handling up to 500-tonne loads. Leveraging the tides of the Bay of Fundy, there is no other combination of industrially zoned lands proximate to a barge terminal facility with deep tidal water access in Atlantic Canada.  Saint John Industrial Parks also operates the McAllister and Spruce Lake parks, offering both serviced and unserviced land, with shovel-ready sites available for subdivision to suit your needs.
