Michels Corporation has released a video of the construction of the 285 km Nexus Gas Transmission (NEXUS) Pipeline.
During the project to build a 36 inch (915 mm) diameter section of the pipeline from Michigan to Ohio in the US, as well as three meter and two compressor stations, Michels mobilised more than 2,000 people and 1,000 pieces of equipment.
Michels self-performed the mainline pipeline construction, as well as conduction dewatering, 224 road bores, 12 horizontal directional drills, facilities construction and sheet piling works.
This forms part of NEXUS’ 455 km US to Canada interstate pipeline, which will deliver 42.5 million m3/d, emerging Appalachian shale gas supplies natural gas from receipt points in eastern Ohio, US to consumers in northern Ohio; southeastern Michigan; and the Dawn Hub in Ontario, Canada.
The project will help meet the growing demand for cleaner power generation, industrial and commercial use, and home heating, as well as providing an offset to the decline in traditional western Canadian supplies.
