Seaspan ULC | Seaspan Camel Relocation
On June 7, 2023, a project permit was issued to Seaspan ULC (the permit holder) to reposition two camel floats within their waterlot fronting 10 Pemberton Avenue, in Noth Vancouver, British Columbia on federal lands and waters managed by the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority.
The project was approved subject to 36 permit conditions the permit holder must meet to ensure the project does not result in significant adverse envirionmental effects.
About the project
The Applicant is proposing to repositione two camel floats within their waterlot at 10 Pemberton Ave, North Vancouver, BC (the “Project”). The floats would be repositioned to the southern end of the existing moorage area. The Project would require relocation of one existing cantilevered 1219 mm (48”) diameter steel pile and the installation of two additional 1219 mm cantilevered steel piles. The existing southernmost center tie-up pile may need to be repositioned within two metres of its existing position to accommodate the relocated camels. A marine derrick and a vibratory hammer would be used for pile extraction and installation.
The project is anticipated to take place within the least risk window for the project area (August 16 – February 28).
