NOVA PE1 Gas Phase (R3) Expansion

NOVA Chemicals

Nisku, Alberta

In 2012, Ledcor was contracted by NOVA Chemicals to fabricate and assemble modules for an additional polyethylene unit in their already existing Polyehtylene-1 Joffre plant near Red Deer, Alberta.

The expansion project involved the construction of a 421 KTA capacity, single-train, Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) Unit. Ledcor’s initial scope included 18 piperack modules. Through Ledcor’s pre-construction efforts, we were able to identify three additional piperack modules, as well as, 30 structural steel modularization opportunities which significantly reduced manhours onsite.

The $20M project was completed in the summer of 2015 and took 116,000 manhours.
