A unique facility to maximize performance and efficiency all the year

EDMONTON, Nov. 19, 2013 /CNW/ - Today Saipem has officially opened its
new Edmonton Fabrication Yard in Canada.
The indoor fabrication facility is unique in North America and

delivery by maintaining its workforce activity also during inclement

components and pipes and the assembly of modules for a number of
different projects of the oil and gas market, including liquefied
natural gas and power generation.
"The opening of this fabrication yard is another and very important step
forward in improving our ability to control the costs, quality and
schedule of the projects we execute. It also proves Saipem's
sustainable and long term commitment to Alberta and to Canada," said
Mr. Umberto Vergine, Saipem's Chief Executive Officer. "Saipem is
committed to offer to our clients in Canada a reliable business model
for the projects execution and this yard will make it even stronger.
