The proposed amendment

Westshore Terminals Limited Partnership proposes to upgrade four (4) existing mooring dolphins (piles) at Berth 2 of its terminal at 1 Roberts Bank, Delta starting on September 1, 2023. This would require an extension to the approved Westshore Terminals Berth 2 Mooring Dolphin Upgrades (PER No. 19-187) which has an expiry date of February 28, 2022.

The project has been delayed due to supply chain delays, scheduling conflicts and the global price of coal. These delays indicate the project will not be completed prior to February 28, 2022, and therefore, an extension to the validity of the permit is needed. There are no changes to construction activities or the scope of the work outlined in the approved permit (available here).
