Lornville Cove Could Be Home To Future Barge Site

General Manger for Saint John Industrial Parks Brian Irving says a tenative location has been selected in the Lornville Cove area for a barge site.

He says the site is suitable because of water depths and a road that can accommodate transporters moving oversized components.

Irving tells CHSJ News the the export market for large fabricated metal pieces is very significant -- up to ten of thousands of man-years.

However, Irving says there is still work plenty of work ahead, such as community approval, engineering designs, and permits.

The estimated cost of the project is 6 million dollars and he says he has an aggressive timeline in mind - he would like the project to be completed in 2012.
