ESS, an operating sector of Compass Group Canada, has been awarded a three-year contract to establish a camp and catering service for Vale Inco in Long Harbour.
According to a news release, ESS provides vital workplace support for people working in some of the most demanding and hostile terrains in the world, such as mines and offshore rigs.
The transaction was finalized on March 19.
ESS has operated in Newfoundland for the past 40 years. The company currently employs more than 500 people in Newfoundland and Labrador and provides food services to Memorial University, Eastern Health and the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador.
The new contract will provide additional employment for up to 115 Newfoundlanders. Under the terms of the contract, ESS is making a commitment to hire local subcontractors and lease local equipment.
"This contract provides an exceptional opportunity not only for ESS, but also for the residents of Newfoundland," said Brian Arbuckle, Chair, ESS North America.
According to the terms of the contract, ESS will provide food and support services to the employees hired by Vale Inco to build the nickel processing plant and port. Subcontractor Malthus Canada - a subsidiary of Malthus AS of Norway and based in St. John's - will install temporary housing for the workers. To construct the four-season accommodation, Malthus Canada will employ 25 local residents, purchase Canadian equipment, and lease local equipment.

    Pity the poor workers if they are being fed the kind of food (preparation) as we get in our hospitals by the same company. Can't understand how perfectly good food can be so mistreated. Are there no dietitians who control the quality? The non edibility of the stuff at the hospitials must result in hugh wastage. For better quality, hire a few good nfld. wives, who know how to prepare good food in hugh amounts.

    Thats nothing. I guess the news of the side of beef falling out of the back of the pick up into the dirt at one of the major oilsands sites in Fort McMurray by the same company never made the news here even after it was cooked up and served to a high proportion of Newfoundlanders. That was a fun time.

    Moral of the story, bring your own meals folks.
