Ledcor Resources and Transportation Limited Partnership | Pile Installation and Reconfiguration
On October 14, 2022 a project permit was issued to Fraser River Pile & Dredge (GP) Inc., working on behalf of Ledcor Resources and Transportation Limited Partnership (Ledcor) to increase their barge moorage project adjacent to 1700 Cliveden Avenue, Delta and adjacent to 430 Canfor Avenue, New Westminster, British Columbia. The project is on federal lands and water managed by the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority
The project was approved subject to 32 permit conditions Fraser River Pile & Dredge (GP) Inc. must meet to ensure the project does not result in significant adverse environmental effects.
About the 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.
Should the project be approved, it 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).
