Husky Energy will be leasing a section of the Mariner Retail and Business Center and its parking lot as part of ongoing rebuilding activities at the Superior refinery, according to Husky spokeswoman Kim Guttormson.
The move will provide additional space for the energy company to store and stage equipment and supplies, Guttormson said. Traffic to and from the site will be coordinated to keep larger vehicles away from nearby Great Lakes Elementary School and the Mariner Medical Center.
“We also plan to fence in our leased area to minimize disruption to existing businesses and their customers,” Guttormson said.
Husky plans to use space throughout the center, mainly on the east side of the building. Set-up is expected to take several months based on work happening at the refinery site.
Husky started to rebuild its refinery in September after an explosion and fire on April 26, 2018 injured 36 people and evacuated much of the city.
Suzyn Cragin, who manages the property for Quality Investments Inc., declined to comment.
