NOTIFICATION: We continue to advance our marine and dredging construction activities in the harbour of Kitimat to ensure the existing harbour is ready for larger vessels. We will begin the disposal at sea dredging activity shortly.

Dredging involves the removal of sediments and other materials from the bottom of the water. It’s a common industrial practice and has been done before in the harbour.

For this dredging work, the Shoreway, a trailing suction hopper dredger, will arrive in the harbour the week of December 17th. Our contractor Boskalis will begin disposal at sea dredging activity after that.

The Shoreway is a self-propelled vessel used for dredging loose and soft soils. It does this by lowering a suction tube into the seabed and suctioning dredged material out of the water. The vessel transports and offloads the material that meets disposal at sea requirements into the designated area. All dredging activities have been permitted through regulatory authorities.

The vessel will be actively dredging and disposing dredged material 24-hours a day for approximately two months. The Shoreway will display the required navigational lights and signals while dredging and disposing at sea. Local mariners are requested to maintain a safe distance following marine traffic and collision avoidance regulations.

Safety, the environment and community interests are top-of-mind in every activity we undertake. We’re committed to minimizing and managing impacts to community members and the environment.
