Kitimat Modernization Project

About this Project

DL Baker's Project Team recently wrapped up thirty months of work on the $5.2 billion expansion of Rio Tinto Alcan's aluminum smelter facility located in Kitimat BC.

In July, DL Baker successfully completed its first project in Canada. DL Baker's Team received high marks from both Rio Tinto and Bechtel for its efforts in Safety and Work Performance while executing its scope of work.

It goes without saying that DL Baker is very proud of the overall performance of its Project Team.

Club - I'm one. Are you?

The 42 is symbolic of the last professional baseball player to wear that number - Yankee's legendary pitcher - Mariano Rivera - Regarded as the greatest CLOSER in baseball history and much respected team player.

Rivera was the all-time saves leader with 652 saves, he holds just about every record for a closer, and he was a 5x's World Series Champion.

As we are well into system completions and turnovers and coming down the home stretch of delivering this project as planned - we'll need to be a club of Closers.

KMP'S Club 42 includes individuals recognized on the team as being a closer. Welcome to the Club!!
