As a part of the Enbridge GTA project, a nearly $1 billion, large diameter – 36” and 42”, gas pipeline is being constructed in the greater Toronto area.
IPC, in coordination with Mears (a Quanta Company), was selected to use the Direct Pipe technology on one of the most environmentally sensitive water crossings on this project. IPC successfully completed the tunneling portion of the project at the end of April 2015. A 458m pre-welded and coated 42” diameter, 1” wall thickness pipeline was installed, crossing under both the Credit River as well as a set of railway tracks.
This is the longest of the four Direct Pipe crossings completed in Canada to date.
