SICIM Expands its Business in North America
With the launch of the construction of a section of the Trans Mountain Expansion Project (200 km oil pipeline, in British Columbia, Canada), SICIM actively pursues a strategic plan to engage with North America’s leading infrastructure companies.
Expansion in Canada is underpinned by the recent acquisition of the subsidiary SICIM Canada Ltd in association with Steel River Group. The new contract consists of a 20” urban pipeline replacement, associated to a gas link in Calgary. The “Northwest Calgary Connector” is owned by ATCO Group – Natural Gas Division (a corporation which delivers and transports natural gas throughout the region of Alberta) and construction is scheduled to begin at the end of 2020. It is a challenging job, in an urban environment featuring special sections and highly complex trenchless works. The growth plans for SICIM Canada are ambitious, targeting opportunities with historic clients, such as TransCanada (now TC Energy), and new prospects, such as Fortis BC Energy and Pembina, that deliver natural gas and electricity to customers in British Columbia. In addition to extensively mobilising property construction equipment and their own welding system, SICIM is fostering partnerships with key Canadian players, aspiring to generate value through a genuine culture of team work and sustainability.
