Seaspan Deltaport - Tug Basin Pile Reconfiguration – Public comments invited 

April 8, 2022 – As part of its Project and Environmental Review process, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority must determine whether the proposed Seaspan Deltaport - Tug Basin Pile Reconfiguration, located on the Southeast side of Roberts Bank Causeway of Roberts Bank Terminal, is likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects. Written comments to be received by May 7, 2022

To help inform this determination and a decision on whether or not to approve the proposed project, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority is inviting comments from the public respecting that determination. All comments received will be considered public and may be posted online.  For more information, individuals should consult the Privacy Notice on the Registry website. In addition, your contact information may be shared with third parties, e.g., the tenant, other relevant agencies, to help respond to your questions and inform possible mitigations.

The proposed project 

Seaspan's lease terminates on July 18, 2022, and they are required to move seven (7) out of eight (8) piles back to their original locations, disconnect utilities, and decommission their dock before vacating the location. The eighth pile will be removed from the site and not replaced.  

The piles will be placed in water that ranges in depth from 5 metres to 15 metres below chart datum.  

Pile extraction and relocation activities will be completed using a vibratory hammer from a marine derrick with a mounted crane. 

Pile driving activities are expected to take approximately three days and will be scheduled outside the least-risk window for the Project area (August 16 to February 28). 

The anticipated construction timeline is July 7, 2022 to July 17, 2022.
