Innovative Pipeline Crossings (IPC) was selected by TransCanada to play an integral part in the TransCanada Grande Prairie Mainline Loop project. IPC’s scope of work included Direct Pipe installation for the Highway #16 crossing. Alongside general contractor Ledcor, IPC installed 217m of 48” continuously welded steel pipe with 1” wall thickness and FBE coating.
This is a significant milestone project for both IPC and TransCanada as it is the first Direct Pipe project undertaken by TransCanada, and the first NEB approved Direct Pipe installation in Canada. This project has already received significant attention and interest from the client and within the pipeline industry.
