Vale has just announced it has awarded a $600-million contract to KBAC Constructors, a Kiewit-BMA-G.J Cahill, partnership to provide mechanical, piping, electrical and instrumentation services for the construction of the Long Harbour Processing plant in Newfoundland and Labrador.

 The construction project at Long Harbour is an integral part of Vale’s $10 billion capital investment program in Canada. The  plant represents a US$2.8 billion investment by Vale in a processing plant that will utilize hydrometallurgical technology developed by Vale in Canada with support from Industry Canada’s Technology Partnership Program.

 The Long Harbour Processing Plant will generate 10 million person-years of employment during the construction phase of the project which is scheduled to be completed in February 2013.
