I do not have a good sense as to whether increases are expected to come more from incremental expansions of existing renewable generation or from new, large renewable projects.”


Hydropower


Increasing amounts of power may be coming from the Lower Churchill dam project at Muskrat Falls, Labrador. “That may be a big driver of renewable increases in the next few years,” Phillips cautioned. Timing on the controversial project is not settled. There are also plans for upgrades of existing hydropower dams across Nova Scotia; again, timing is not firm. In conventional oil and gas development, BP has started a drilling programme offshore Nova Scotia, with the supply base at Halifax. Separately, ExxonMobil is advancing its Hebron development in Newfoundland.


One company that hopes to benefit from increasing activity is Ambercor Shipping, which was established in April 2018. Gerald Hess, Marcel Hafemann and Christian Wagner have teamed up on the new venture, all three having recently parted

company with BNSF Logistics. With offices established in Toronto and


Calgary, plus a New York-based subsidiary Ambercor Shipping USA, it has been established to provide support for forwarders that do not have their own offices in North America, but have the need for a capable partner to handle their difficult cargoes in the region. Freight forwarder deugro Canada is involved in several of the big projects in the country, including the dams in British Columbia and Labrador. “The Canadian utility infrastructure is now at least 50 years old,” said Kelly Merath, Toronto branch manager at deugro Canada. That city is Canada’s largest, and main financial centre, but is not a project cargo port.


“Oil and gas have been slow to rebound,”


This region is the most active in the Americas for in-stream tidal projects. – Nancy Phillips, Halifax Partnership


said Merath. “Prices have recovered but we have not seen much capital spending yet in Western Canada. It is becoming a major concern in Alberta that they have the resources but no access to global markets. There is activity on the Atlantic coast, including liquefied natural gas (LNG).”


Constitutional crisis


The closest tidewater to Alberta is the Pacific, but British Columbia has blocked or delayed projects to build new pipelines, or even expand existing ones. What was an inter-provincial dispute has escalated in to a national constitutional crisis.


There are a surprising number of major infrastructure and industrial developments around Atlantic Canada, for which Halifax would be the key port for project cargo shipments. Within the port, Irving Shipbuilding has landed a contract for both surface combat vessels and supply ships. It is the largest federal procurement project in Canadian history.


Overhead, the rebuilding of the Macdonald Bridge across Halifax Harbor is nearing completion. The project includes:
