Mooring Piles at Pier 94 - Public Comments Invited

The Proposed Amendment 

Seaspan proposes to provide additional moorage for transient marine equipment at their Pier 94 located at 3 St. Andrews Avenue in North Vancouver. The scope of work involves relocating the existing fixed barge (NP70) to an alternate mooring location until it can be repurposed, removing three existing steel-piled dolphins including their timber fenders, and installing seven new 1,067 millimetre diameter cantilevered steel mooring piles. Drilling may be required to advance the piles depending on the density of the underlying till in the location of each pile to achieve required depth. The piles will be extracted and installed using vibratory hammers and, if required, impact hammers on spud-barge-mounted marine derrick and crane. Underwater noise mitigation and marine mammal observation will take place during the length of the works. The works are to be completed during normal operating hours. Works are expected to require approximately 10 weeks to complete. This project was previously approved, and the applicant is requesting an extension to the validity period – an additional 2 years.
