The Proposed project  

Fibreco proposes to realign their dock conveyor structure to allow for a lower conveyor angle, as well as replace their existing mechanical tripper at Conveyor 2. The scope of work involves using a barge-mounted crane to lift conveyor sections off, the support legs will be modified and extended where required, and then the conveyor section brought back down and secured to the legs. Once the conveyor has been aligned, the Conveyor 2 mechanical tripper will be replaced like-for-like using a barge-mounted crane. A temporary construction trailer is to be located nearby for contractor use. Works will take place over water. All cutting and welding debris will be contained to prevent it entering the marine environment. Operation and fueling activities will be conducted using preventative spill containment and spill kits. The works are proposed outside standard working hours between 6:00 a.m. and midnight, on weekdays. The Project is proposed to start in mid-October 2021 and is expected to be completed within approximately 10 weeks.
