Lorneville’s Spruce Lake Module Yard Facility has a long history of constructing modules for mega projects in and around Southern New Brunswick. With the recently completed Spruce Lake Barge Terminal located adjacent to our facility, we have access to tidewater and can ship modules to any project site.
During an upgrade project for the Coleson Cove 900 MW Thermal Plant, Lorneville was hired by NB Power to design, fabricate, and install the Flue Gas Breaching System. We built 26 large modules in our shop, ranging from 40 to 140 tonnes, then shipped the modules to the site for installation by our team. Lorneville’s approach to rigging was a critical factor in the success of the project, proving our commitment to developing methods that cater to your project’s specific needs.
