Horizon North Logistics Inc. (“Horizon North” or the “Corporation”) (TSX: HNL.TO) announced today that its Industrial Services division has recently been awarded several camp service contracts for customers in the Montney region of Alberta and British Columbia.
Together, these contracts include the provision of full turn-key camp facilities, including hospitality and operational services, across 1,155 beds. Combined revenue is expected to be $55.1 million over the term of the contracts, which vary in duration through the end of 2019.
The contracts call for the deployment of 334 beds for a new location, and the continued utilization of 821 beds across three existing locations, including Horizon North’s Gold Creek Lodge. The new location will be comprised entirely of existing fleet, with a minimal amount of capital required to mobilize and maintain the facility. The required capital is included in the Corporation’s 2018 capital plan.
“These contracts strengthen Horizon North’s position as the largest open and customer camp provider by market share in the Montney and Duvernay regions of Alberta and British Columbia,” says Rod Graham, President and Chief Executive Officer of Horizon North. “Our high-quality full turn-key offering is appreciated by our customers, who continue to also recognize and value our relationships with Aboriginal communities and our world-class safety record as reasons for doing business with Horizon North.”
