Welland Canal: Waterway Wonder

The Company was instrumental not only in the design and engineering but the construction of the Seaway’s locks and and flood control. The experience the Company had in the construction of Egypt’s Suez Canal was implemented in the St Lawrence construction. The Company executed an aggressive schedule for the customer by continuing with the excavation and dredging of the site through the cold Quebec winters. Since its original completion we have upgraded the computer and monitoring controls; enlarged the waterway’s tonnage capacity of the Seaway making it one of North America’s marquee harbors and naval passages.
