The design of the facility meets some of the strictest regulatory standards in the world for safety, sustainability and environmental protection. In consultation with First Nations, work activities have been planned to minimize potential impacts to the environment.
The project will utilize a cost-effective modular construction approach. Large and complex modules will be assembled by several existing fabrication yards and transported to the project site via water, minimizing construction congestion and disruptions in the community.
The joint venture will focus on hiring locally and then throughout British Columbia and Canada. More than 4,500 jobs will be created at the peak of construction, which will require approximately 7,000 to 7,500 workers due to the shift work nature of employment. Workforce development and training programs will be available for local community members, and there will be a focus on developing positions for traditionally underrepresented individuals and groups. Fluor is also committed to providing contracting and procurement opportunities for First Nations and local businesses.
