Seaspan Outfitting Pier Extension

Seaspan ULC proposes to construct a new outfitting pier located within the Vancouver Shipyards site in North Vancouver. The project includes the removal of the existing timber outfitting pier and replacement with a new steel and concrete pier. The new pier will have an increased footprint of approximately 3,700 square meters. 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.

The project will allow for increased capacity and improved efficiency for shipbuilding operations and will support work under the National Shipbuilding Strategy.
