Project status
Permit issued

In October 2021, a projct permit was issued to Fibreco Export Incorporated (Fibreco) to realign their dock conveyor structure and replace their existing mechanical tripper at Conveyor 2. The project is located on the north end of the Burrard Inlet at 1209 McKeen Ave, North Vancouver, BC on waters managed by the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority.

The project was approved subject to 31 permit conditions Fibreco must meet to ensure the project does no result in significant adverse environmental effects.

About the project

Fibreco proposes to realign their dock conveyor structure to allow for a lower conveyor angle, as well as replace their existing mechanical tripper at Conveyor 2. The scope of work involves using a barge-mounted crane to lift conveyor sections off, the support legs will be modified and extended where required, and then the conveyor section brought back down and secured to the legs. Once the conveyor has been aligned, the Conveyor 2 mechanical tripper will be replaced like-for-like using a barge-mounted crane. A temporary construction trailer is to be located nearby for contractor use. Works will take place over water. All cutting and welding debris will be contained to prevent it entering the marine environment. Operation and fueling activities will be conducted using preventative spill containment and spill kits.
