The new crane will be made in Canada, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation.
Keystone XL is the pipeline that would carry crude oil from Alberta, Canada, to refineries in Texas and Louisiana.
The Keystone XL Pipeline would carry nearly 900,000 barrels of oil a day from Alberta’s tar sands region to refiners along the Texas Gulf Coast.
This crane would help build Keystone XL’s new $6.8 billion, 1,200-mile (1,891-kilometer) segment.
The new Keystone XL crane would make the segment a reality.
The crane would go into operation in 2019.
The United States has been working to build the Keystone Pipeline since President Donald Trump took office.
The pipeline would carry up to 800,000 vehicles a day, according the National Association of Manufacturers.
The project has been delayed several times, and the State Department has rejected a $3.7 billion bid for the pipeline last month.
But President Donald J. Trump has said he will approve the project.
The State Department, which has also rejected several other bids, is also evaluating other possible routes for the project, according a State Department official.
The president said during a White House press conference in February that the pipeline could be built “without destroying the environment or threatening the environment of our country.”
Trump also said in February he would “absolutely” sign an executive order to boost construction of the pipeline, which is a key part of the president’s broader climate agenda.
The White House has also said that Keystone XL would “create hundreds of thousands of jobs.”
