Construction Notification: Marine area piling noise

Construction Notification : Marine area piling noise

Work continues at our tug berth facility in the Port of Kitimat. The berth will support a new fleet of electric battery powered and low-emissions tugboats built and operated by HaiSea Marine, a joint venture majority-owned by the Haisla Nation in partnership with Seaspan ULC.

Vibratory piling at the tug berth facility will begin the week of May 17th. This in-water work is expected to last four to eight weeks, with minimal public impacts expected. While impact hammers may be deployed, the piles will be installed using a vibratory hammer predominantly; these produce significantly less noise than impact hammers. The area will be actively monitored for marine mammals and acoustic levels. For more information, please email [email protected]
