Fermeuse Energy Limited has announced its selection of Dexter Construction Company Limited and Harbourside Engineering Consultants for the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) of its Marine Base and Spool Base at Fermeuse Harbour.

Dexter Construction Company Limited is the largest heavy civil construction company in Atlantic Canada and a member of the Municipal Group of Companies, a recognized leader in heavy civil construction, waste management, logistics, and mining support services. The company’s proven expertise in infrastructure and vertical integration capabilities make it a valuable provider for the Marine Base and Spool Base project.
Dexter’s Ken Maclean said: “We are thrilled to be working with Fermeuse Energy on this unique and consequential opportunity. We look forward to bringing our expertise and resources to the table to deliver this project on time and on budget.”
Harbourside Engineering Consultants, one of the largest independently owned structural engineering firms in Atlantic Canada, specializes in the design, project management, and construction implementation of heavy civil infrastructure projects.

Swapan Kataria, President of Fermeuse Energy Limited, is looking forward to working alongside Dexter and Harbourside. “This is important pre-construction planning work. Careful design – with inputs from future potential users – will lead to higher operational efficiency, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, and an overall lower carbon footprint for the benefit of our clients and our communities.
