Cap-aux-Meules Port - Temporary Dock

The project consists of setting up a temporary wharf to be used for mooring fishing vessels in order to compensate for the loss of a few berths at the fishermen's wharf. This temporary wharf will be dismantled when a permanent wharf can be built in a few years.

The temporary wharf will be approximately 18 m by 40 m. There will be a footbridge for a pedestrian crossing that will be installed between the existing wharf and the temporary wharf. The temporary wharf will comprise steel piles and a steel deck that is equipped with fender systems, mooring bollards and a lighting system. The steel piles will be installed via a crane and by piling. The deck will be put in place gradually out to sea from the terrestrial environment using a crane on a temporary bridge attached between the path of the existing wharf and the new piles.
