Transfer Ponds Upgrades - Neptune

As the Allison Project (PER No. 2012-066 – Neptune Coal Capacity - Allison) moves towards completion, the terminal is experiencing an increased demand for water capacity. To help alleviate this demand, Neptune Bulk Terminals (Neptune) is proposing to install a 500 metre long coalwater forcemain from transfer pond 2 to transfer pond 5 (along the centre of their coal operations). Neptune is also proposing to upgrade the pump stations by adding 5 new pumps with new piping systems, supporting structures and electrical connections – the existing structures are to remain in place. Should the permit be approved, the project is expected take approximately 1 month to complete and will be undertaken during standard port authority construction hours.
