Lehigh Hanson Materials Ltd. has entered a 10-year agreement to market fly ash from the SaskPower Shand Power Station, boosting annual supply potential from the province to 215,000 tonnes. A supply contract follows a similar 2012 agreement covering fly ash from SaskPower’s Boundary Dam Power Station.

“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,” says Vice President of Transmission and Industrial Services Kory Hayko. “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.”

“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,” adds Lehigh Hanson Materials CEO Chris Ward.
