TC Energy Corporation is a major energy company that develops and operates energy infrastructure throughout North American. Its Nova Gas Transmission System (NGTL) is a natural gas gather and transportation system that connects production in western Canada to domestic and export markets.
To expand its auxiliary systems and provide upgraded capacity for customers, the Clearwater Compressor Station expansion project was implemented. A section of the project included protecting a drainage channel that runs along the perimeter of the facility.
TC Energy has a long-standing commitment to protecting the environment and reducing greenhouse gases. PYRAMAT® High Performance Turf Reinforcement Mat (HPTRM) was chosen to provide long-term protection for the drainage channel because it offers an environmentally friendly and economic solution for slope protection.
GiveBack Contracting installed approximately 17,000 square meters of PYRAMAT. PYRAMAT delivers the highest specification requirements for erosion protection of slopes and is the only HPTRM to have a verified carbon footprint by an independent third-party. The HPTRM is engineered to promote vegetated reinforcement, maintaining a lower carbon impact at a lower installed cost than hard armor alternatives like rock and concrete.
