Northwest Pipe Company, an industry leader of engineered welded steel pipe products for the water transmission market, announced it will provide over 6,500 tons of 8‑foot and 5‑foot diameter water pipe for the Second Narrows Water Supply Tunnel project in Vancouver, British Columbia. The pipe will be installed by a partnership of Traylor Infrastructure Canada, ULC, and Aecon, both of Vancouver, British Columbia. The partnership was awarded the tunnel project last fall by Metro Vancouver, the regional water supplier for the metropolitan area.

The pipe will be installed in a 19‑foot diameter, 3,600‑foot-long tunnel to be bored under Burrard Inlet between the District of North Vancouver and the City of Burnaby. Pipe deliveries are anticipated to start in 2020.

“We’re looking forward to working with Traylor-Aecon General Partnership on this critical tunnel project for the region. We’re pleased as well to serve Metro Vancouver and continue our long-standing contribution to the region’s water pipe needs,” said Scott Montross, President and CEO of Northwest Pipe Company.
