Xstrata Nickel Plant

Sudbury, Ontario

The Xstrata Nickel Plant required an addition to the existing facility to meet increased demand. This project required a quick mobilization after award with tight timelines for completion. EBS was chosen for our design-build capabilities, quick mobilization, and safety record. EBS’s design team determined that soil bonded micropiles were the most cost effective design to support the structures.

Compression Load: 500kN (113 kips) 
Tension Load: 385kN (87 kips) 
Total Length of Micropile: 12 metres 
Total Number of Micropiles:  90
