The Proposed Project

Seaspan ULC proposes to construct a new outfitting pier located within the Vancouver Shipyards site in North Vancouver to accommodate new vessel construction. The project includes the removal of the existing timber outfitting pier (1,550 square meters) and installation of a new pier (5,222 square meters) constructed with steel piles and concrete deck. As part of the removal of the existing outfitting pier, approximately 590 creosote piles will be removed and replaced with approximately 126 new steel piles. Dredging is proposed for the area located adjacent to the new pier to allow for construction and vessel draught during operations.
