Western Canada to See More Than $20 Billion in Project Kickoffs in Third-Quarter 2015, With Renewables in Lead, an Industrial Info News Alert

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwired - Jun 12, 2015) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- The Western Canadian region leads the nation with more than $20 billion in projects slated to kick off from July through September, with a surprisingly strong showing for renewable energy projects in an area that traditionally has been dominated by the mining and oil-drilling industries. In fact, most of the spending comes from two closely watched projects: a hydroelectric project in British Columbia and an iron ore mine in Nunavut. Almost 95% of the total can be attributed to just four industries: Power, Metals & Minerals, Oil & Gas Production, and Oil & Gas Pipelines.

Within this article: Details on key projects from major companies, including Phoenix Power Group Incorporated, Baffinland Iron Mines Corporation, ArcelorMittal S.A. (NYSE:MT), Iron Ore Holdings, Keyera Corporation (TSX:KEY), and Stantec Incorporated (NYSE:STN).
