Canada Place East Berth Fender Installation

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority proposes to install a new fender on the east berth of Canada Place to safely accommodate larger cruise ships in the future. The Project will consist of installing two (2) steel piles and a steel floating camel.  

Work activities will include: 

  • Removing approximately 1.5 metres by 0.9 metres by 1.5 metres of reinforced concrete deck by saw cutting and chipping, including asphalt, to facilitate the installation of the piles 
  • Installing two (2), 20 metres long and 914 millimeter diameter painted steel pipe piles on the east berth 
  • Installing steel fasteners into concrete, i.e., drilled Hilti anchors and U-bolts 
  • Reinstating concrete and asphalt on decking 
  • Securing the floating camel to the steel piles using mooring rope 

The steel piles and floating camel will be fabricated off-site and delivered to the Project site via barge. Steel piles will be installed using either a vibratory or an impact hammer from a marine derrick. 

The anticipated construction timeline is April 1, 2022 to August 31, 2022.
