Lehigh Hanson Materials Ltd. and SaskPower signed an agreement to give Lehigh exclusive rights to market fly ash from Shand Power Station in Saskatchewan, Canada, effective November 2018. The deal expands on an existing 10-year agreement signed in 2012 to market Boundary Dam Power Station fly ash.
“Recycling fly ash produced at our coal-fired power stations reduces costs, provides economic benefit to SaskPower, and helps to curb the carbon output of the concrete industry,” said Kory Hayko, SaskPower vice president of transmission and industrial services. “During the past six years, Lehigh has maximized sales of fly ash produced at Boundary Dam Power Station, and we look forward to continuing our positive business relationship.”
An estimated 215,000 metric tons of fly ash per year will be sold from the Boundary Dam and Shand power stations. Each metric ton of recycled fly ash prevents roughly one metric ton of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere.
“Lehigh Cement is excited to expand on our already strong relationship with SaskPower,” said Chris Ward, president and CEO of Lehigh Hanson Materials Ltd. “This agreement is a step forward as we work to foster economic growth in Saskatchewan by selling fly ash from Boundary Dam and Shand power stations to markets across North America.”
