Australian services giant Worley said it has been awarded a module fabrication and field construction services contract for the Kearl oil sands operation in Alberta, Canada.

The contract was awarded by Imperial Oil Resources, and relates to the in-pit tailings infrastructure project at Kearl.

Module fabrication and assembly of the project’s first two phases will be done at WorleyCord’s Edmonton modularization yard with field execution at the project site in the Fort McMurray area.

Robotic welding will be used in the fabrication and HoloLens technology will be used to enhance health and safety outcomes by facilitating virtual site visits.

“Having worked together for more than 30 years, we are pleased to continue providing Imperial with integrated solutions on this large fabrication and construction project,” said Chris Ashton, Worley chief executive.
