Maximizing local content – in terms of employment and supplies – is one of the main features of Saipem Canada Inc.'s business philosophy.
The local content strategy provides considerable social benefits to the host area, in terms of investments, employment, development of subcontractors and other factors. From Saipem Canada Inc.'s perspective, maximizing local content means also developing continuing relationships with the host area and with local clients and suppliers. This often has beneficial effects on project costs and, most important, diminishes the overall risk profile of the project in question.
Saipem Canada Inc. invests substantially in local facilities, ranging from engineering centers and support yards for maintenance and storage of construction equipment to fully-fledged fabrication yards, where sections of major projects are assembled for onshore field construction.
