Wood Chip Barge Berth

 Project: Port Mellon

Location: Port Mellon, British Columbia

Project Type: Wood chip handling facility

Client: Fraser River Pile & Dredge Ltd.


As part of a turnkey package to Howe Sound Pulp & Paper Ltd., Fraser River Pile & Dredge Ltd. enlisted VJA to design and supervise the construction of the support structures for a new chip link unloading facility. This comprised of a reinforced concrete abutment foundation and a steel pile turning dolphin.

The abutment is pile supported with rock anchors installed to resist the large forces applied by still arm connections from the floating chip link barge. The five pile cantilever dolphin is pin connected between piles and is equipped with guides to retain the outer end of the floating pier.
