Equipment from Muskrat Falls Generating Project set to sell in this week's online Ritchie Bros. auction

2,000+ items used in the Labrador hydro-dam project will sell in an Atlantic Canada Timed Auction


TRURO, NS (September 19, 2022) – This week Ritchie Bros. will conduct a multi-day Timed Auction event with close to 3,400 equipment and trucks selling from three locations across Atlantic Canada. The online auction will be hosted from Ritchie Bros.' site in Truro, NS, but approximately two-thirds of the equipment will be sold from a jobsite in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Labrador where it was used on the construction of the Muskrat Falls Generating Project.

"Most of the equipment used in the Muskrat Falls Generating Project was purchased specifically for that job and has never been used anywhere else, resulting in a big list of low-hour and low-mileage units," said Ryan Pottruff, Regional Sales Manager, Ritchie Bros. "For example, we have a 2016 Mack concrete pump truck with less than 7,000 kms and a 2020 Komatsu excavator with just 710 hours. We also have everything else you need to run a project—from big equipment to small tools—including cranes, light towers, pickup trucks and more."

Bidding for Ritchie Bros.' Atlantic Canada Timed Auction event begins on September 21, with items closing on September 26 and 27. To register, research equipment, and find more information, visit
