EllisDon Named Construction Manager for Algoma Steel’s Electric Arc Furnace Project

EllisDon has been selected to deliver Algoma Steel’s transformative Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) project in Sault Ste. Marie.

“We are very proud to join Algoma’s team in one of Canada’s largest electrification projects targeting reduced carbon emissions. We are excited to bring our broad experience, a spirit of profound openness and a determination to help Algoma achieve all of its objectives. This is a partnership with Algoma, and a partnership with the environment, and we are very excited to be a part of it,” said Geoff Smith, President and Chief Executive Officer, EllisDon.

Algoma Steel is a leading Canadian producer of hot and cold rolled steel sheet and plate products. Once the EAF project is completed, Algoma will become one of the lowest-cost low carbon steel production facilities in North America, expanding their annual steelmaking capacity from 2.8 million tons to 3.7 million tons with an estimated 70% reduction in carbon emissions; setting the standard for the complete electrification of an integrated steelmaker.
