Shellburn Berthing Dolphin Replacement - Amendment PER No. 20-012-01 (Condition 23 - Extended Hours)

The Proposed Project Amendment
Shell Canada Products Ltd. proposes to carry out physical activities related to the replacement of four existing berthing dolphins and the installation of a fifth berthing dolphin at the Shellburn facility 24 hours a day, five days a week for the construction period from January 2021 to June 2022. These works require an amendment to condition 23 of the approved Shellburn Berthing Dolphin Replacement project permit (PER No. 20-012). The rationale for the extended work hours request is to allow for safe, efficient and timely completion of Project activities that are tidally dependent.  

Project components associated with this request include formwork removal, fender panel installation, works to support installation of in-water piles such as splicing or welding pile sections together, and deck re-instatement activities. No pile driving activity (installation or removal) will be conducted outside of regular construction hours.

The Proposed Project
Shell Canada Products Limited, (the Applicant) is proposing to replace four existing berthing dolphins and install a fifth berthing dolphin to the existing wharf structure at the Shellburn facility in Burnaby, BC. The project consists of the removal of 185 timber piles and the installation of 65 timber and 29 concrete filled steel pipe piles. Eight temporary timber fender piles will be installed to secure construction-related support vessels and then removed once the project is complete. The project work will be carried out from a floating barge using a spud barge, materials barge, vibratory pile driving hammer and impact pile driving hammer. The proposed maintenance work will be carried out either from a floating barge or from the top of the dock. Marine vessel traffic would include a barge mounted crane for pile installation, and tugs to assist in barge movement. All waste materials will be collected within the immediate project area and transported to an appropriate facility for recycling or disposal. Project works are proposed to take place from July 2020 to March 2022, with in-water works occurring only during the least-risk fisheries window (August 16 to February 28, inclusive).
