Cap-aux-Meules Port - Temporary Dock

The project consists of installing a barge or floating dock to serve as the temporary mooring of a few fishing vessels between the beginning of March 2022 and the end of autumn 2022. This period could be extended by approximately 2 or 3 years. This temporary measure is intended to compensate for the loss of a few berths at the fishermen's wharf due to the latter's poor condition.

Construction method

If the barge option is selected: the barge will possibly be brought by sea (tugboat). It will be anchored to the seabed using "spuds". If the floating dock option is chosen: possibly the transport will be by boat and the installation will be done by a crane.
