Calgary, Alberta (April 12, 2017) – Horizon North Logistics Inc. (“Horizon North” or the “Corporation”) (TSX – HNL) announced today that its Industrial division has been awarded a new camp service contract.
Horizon North has recently been awarded a three-year contract for the provision of camp solutions in the Qikiqtaaluk Region of Nunavut. Horizon North will be providing a turnkey 380 person hybrid camp as well as providing camp services at the customer’s existing camp facilities. Concurrently with the provision of these services the customer will be installing an 800 person permanent workforce accommodation facility (the “Permanent Facility”). Horizon North will be providing camp services at the Permanent Facility as it comes online. Combined revenue over the term is expected to be approximately $62 million and will require approximately $7 million of capital to be deployed which is already included in the Corporation’s 2017 capital budget.
“Horizon North has a long history of working in Canada’s Arctic regions. It is this history combined with our ongoing commitment to safety and engagement with the local communities in which we operate that we believe were instrumental in securing this award,” said Rod Graham, President and CEO of Horizon North. “We look forward to continuing our relationship with the Inuit communities to maximize benefits through local sourcing, direct employment and capacity building.”
