SaskPower and Lehigh Hanson Materials Limited have signed an agreement to give Lehigh exclusive rights to market fly ash from Shand Power Station. This expands on an existing 10-year agreement signed in 2012 to market Boundary Dam Power Station fly ash. Fly ash is a fine powder by-product of coal combustion used use in ready mix concrete, mine backfill, oil well cementing, road base stabilization and liquid waste stabilization.

SaskPower has been selling fly ash since the late 1960s.“Recycling fly ash produced at our coal-fired power stations reduces costs, provides economic benefit to SaskPower, and helps to curb the carbon output of the concrete industry,” said Kory Hayko, SaskPower Vice-President of Transmission and Industrial Services.

"During the past six years Lehigh has maximized sales of fly ash produced at Boundary Dam Power Station, and we look forward to continuing our positive business relationship.”An estimated 215,000 tonnes of fly ash per year will be sold from the Boundary Dam and Shand Power stations. Each tonne of recycled fly ash prevents roughly one tonne of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere.

“Lehigh Cement is excited to expand on our already strong relationship with SaskPower,” said Chris Ward, president and CEO of Lehigh Hanson Materials Limited.

“This agreement is a step forward as we work to foster economic growth in Saskatchewan by selling fly ash from Boundary Dam and Shand power stations to markets across North America."

The SaskPower and Lehigh sales agreement goes into effect November 2018. Shand fly ash customers have been notified of the change.
