Resources Transportation

The Transportation Committee identifies transportation issues and opportunities that may impact responsible development and growth of the natural resource industry.

Committee Leader: Craig Clifton, Clifton Associates Ltd.

2016 Committee Update

Activities:

  • Working with the Construction Owners Association of Alberta and the Consulting Engineering of Alberta, the committee made a case for transporting heavier modules - adding more value at the fabrication site by increasing the density of the modules.
  • In addition to its potential to yield safety improvements, the initiative could also produce savings of several percentage points in total installed costs.

Recent Outcomes:

  • A successful pilot move from Edmonton to Fort McMurray was conducted in March and next steps - reviewing the experience with officials from Alberta Transportation - are underway.
