Shellburn Berthing Dolphin Replacement

Shell Canada Products Limited, (the Applicant) is proposing to replace four existing berthing dolphins and install a fifth berthing dolphin to the existing wharf structure at the Shellburn facility in Burnaby, BC. The project consists of the removal of 185 timber piles and the installation of 65 timber and 29 concrete filled steel pipe piles. Eight temporary timber fender piles will be installed to secure construction-related support vessels and then removed once the project is complete. The project work will be carried out from a floating barge using a spud barge, materials barge, vibratory pile driving hammer and impact pile driving hammer. The proposed maintenance work will be carried out either from a floating barge or from the top of the dock. Marine vessel traffic would include a barge mounted crane for pile installation, and tugs to assist in barge movement. All waste materials will be collected within the immediate project area and transported to an appropriate facility for recycling or disposal. Project works are proposed to take place from July 2020 to March 2022, with in-water works occurring only during the least-risk fisheries window (August 16 to February 28, inclusive).
