Details released of demolition at former Eurocan site

The largest structure to be demolished will be the former sawmill building

Chevron Canada has revealed details of the planned demolition of structures at the former Eurocan site in the Kitimat industrial area.

Chevron Communications Lead Ray Lord provided the Sentinel with a photo of the area and the proposed demolitions work, which is part of early works and involves preparing the various sites prior to a Final Investment Decision being made.

The planned demolitions also featured during a recent open house held at Riverlodge.

The largest structure to be demolished will be the former Eurocan sawmill building, which will be removed during the rest of 2017.

A number of other smaller structures and pipeways will also be demolished in the process.

“The intention is to repurpose and remediate areas on that site.

“As a heavy industrial site there are structures and soil conditions that will require remediation and monitoring over some years – a cleanup,” said Lord.
