EDMONTON, ALBERTA–(Marketwired – April 13, 2017) – North American Energy Partners Inc. (“NAEP” or “the Company”) (TSX:NOA)(NYSE:NOA) an Edmonton-based heavy construction and mining contractor, today announces that the earthworks contract for 2017 previously announced by the Company on January 25, 2017 has been terminated by the customer due to a recent plant fire at the mine site.
Martin Ferron, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company stated, “While this is a disappointing development we are encouraged that the customer is working with us to mitigate the lost revenue, by potentially providing alternative utilization for part of the equipment fleet involved.
