The proposed project 

Fraser River Pile & Dredge (GP) Inc., working on behalf of Ledcor Resources and Transportation Limited Partnership (Ledcor), is proposing to increase their barge moorage areas by: 

  • Install one (1) 914-millimetre and one (1) 1,067-millimetre diameter single steel pile dolphins at Ledcor's Annacis tie-up site 
  • Install six (6) 914-millimetre diameter single steel pile dolphins and potentially relocate one (1) 610-millimetre and (1) 1,219-millimetre diameter single steel pile dolphins at their Sapperton tie-up site if suitable for reuse 
  • If the piles are not suitable for reuse, piles would be placed onto a material barge for transport to an off-site recycling facility 

The proposed pile installation and relocation activities would be carried out using a marine spud derrick equipped with a vibratory hammer and a materials barge. 

The project is expected to be completed within four days in late July, during Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) least-risk window fish (Fraser River: June 16 to February 28).
