Log Grapple Installation - Halo Sawmill

Halo Sawmill Manufacturing Limited Partnership proposes to install a log grapple to improve throughput of timber and increase safety by reducing the personnel required to move logs in the water at all times, including during freshet and winter conditions. 

The project consists of: 

  • Construction of a platform to install the log grapple 
  • Installation of a boom cable recycling bin 
  • Construction of a boom, stick, and grapple maintenance platform 
  • Installation of approximately 10, 610-millimetre diameter steel piles 
  • Construction of a 14-square-metre log storage area 
  • Installation of an electrical grapple 

Steel piles would be installed using a marine spud derrick and materials barge with a vibratory hammer. The project would be scheduled within the least-risk fisheries work window for the project area (i.e., June 16 to February 28).
