BAF Site facilities

When we say big we mean it.

The BAF Site spans more than 25km2 supporting simultaneous construction, maintenance, inspection, fabrication, load-out, assembly, manufacturing, and supply servicing activities in three key areas: Fabrication Yard, Marine Facility and Deepwater Site.

The Site is located in the eastern region of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. With a direct connection to the Trans-Canada Highway, the BAF Site is about a 1.5-hour drive from the St. John’s International Airport.

BAF provides common services at the Site to support each asset. This includes 24/7 security, water and sewer, snow clearing, UHF radio, and electrical power distribution. Tenants are typically responsible for services within their leased space.
