GBS

Welcome

Kiewit-Kvaerner Contractors (KKC), a 50/50 Partnership between Peter Kiewit Infrastructure Co and Kvaerner Newfoundland Ltd. has been awarded a contract by ExxonMobil Canada Properties (EMCP) for the Hebron Project gravity based structure (GBS). The contract is for the design, procurement, construction and installation of the Hebron Gravity Based Structure (GBS).

The Hebron Field will be developed using a stand-alone, concrete gravity-based structure (GBS) production platform. It will consist of a reinforced concrete structure designed to withstand the weight of the Topsides, icebergs, and meteorological and oceanographic conditions at the offshore Hebron Project Site. The total platform will be installed in approximately 95 meters water depth at the Grand Banks offshore Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. The field is located approximately 340 km east-southeast from St. John’s and situated just north of the Terra Nova field and southeast of the Hibernia field.

Peter Kiewit Infrastructure Co. and Kvaerner Newfoundland Ltd. And its affiliate  Aker Solutions, have a long history of working together which includes work on the Hibernia GBS Project and White Rose FPSO. With over 125 years’ construction experience, Kiewit is one of North America’s largest and most respected construction and mining organizations. Kvaerner/Aker Solutions has completed some 30 GBS projects over the last 40 years making them the leading GBS contractor worldwide.

  • Providing full and fair opportunity to local and Canadian suppliers, with first consideration given to local suppliers on a competitive basis;
