A contract for $C6,685,054 has been awarded to Foundation-Lundrigans, a joint venture for the construction of a wharf at the oil rig facility at Cow Head on the Burin Peninsula.
The wharf, which was designed by Newfoundland Design Associates of St. John's, will measure 125 meters long with a 44 meter by 23 meter head block and will be capable of accommodating two oil rigs as well as supply vessels at the same time.
The project is scheduled for completion early in 1986.
Foundation-Lundrigans is a joint venture company comprised of Foundation Company of Canada Ltd., of Toronto and the Lundrigans Group Ltd., of Corner Brook.
When completed, the Cow Head facility will consist of three main elements including the wharf structure together with a rock-filled causeway, a site storage area and a service building.
The estimated cost of the entire project is $Cll million which is cost shared on a 70:30 basis between the Federal and Provincial Governments under the Burin Peninsula Development Fund Agreement.
The Cow Head oil rig servicing facility is an expansion of Marystown Shipyard Limited and will be supported by the workforce as well as the fabricating and machining facilities at the yard, ft is anticipated that the facility will provide a saving of up to 40 percent on rig servicing costs.
