Superior Industrial Fabrication and Module Yard Services

Our expert fabrication team ensures success every step of the way when executing your project. Our fabrication facilities, located in the McAllister and Spruce Lake Industrial Parks in Saint John, New Brunswick, are certified to CSA Standard W47.1, ASME, and n285, and our qualified team of welders are tested and approved to our numerous welding procedures for various processes, including GMAW, FCAW, SMAW, GTAW, and SAW.

Fabrication facility

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.

Featured Project

Coleson Cove 900 MW Thermal Plant Upgrade Project

During the Coleson Cove 900 MW Thermal Plant upgrade project, Lorneville was hired by NB Power to design, fabricate, and install a new Flue Gas Breaching System.

For this project, Lorneville utilized fabricated modules to gain efficiencies in field construction activities, and with efficiency knowledge, we fabricated large modules in our shop. This fabrication project included:

Six units, 150ft long x 21ft in diameter x 140 tonnes
Eight units, 110ft long x 21ft in diameter x 110 tonnes
Twelve units, 60ft long x 21ft in diameter x 40 tonnes

After the design and fabrication of these modules in our Saint John, New Brunswick fabrication facility, we shipped the modules to the thermal plant in Coleson Cove for installation by our team. This project was a massive success, as we were able to apply a unique approach to rigging that allowed us to position large components beyond the reach of cranes. This method was a critical factor in the success of the project—a testament to Lorneville's commitment to delivering the most efficient and effective approaches to fabrication and installation.
