We’re very excited to announce that on January 21st, 2019, our BJM JV received a Letter of Award from JGC|Fluor BC LNG JV, who are the prime contractor to LNG Canada, for the design and construction of the Material Offloading Facility (MOF), as part of the LNG Canada Project in Kitimat. In general, the scope of the project will include;
- Demolition and removal of existing marine structures and debris
- Design and construction of the 228 m long MOF North Berth
- Design and construction of the 291 m long MOF West Berth
- Supply and Installation of a new Marine Outfall.
The MOF will consist of a backfilled/anchored combiwall retaining structure, constructed in the easterly basin presently bounded by the existing Methanex jetty to the west, and the Eurocan docks to the east. This project site is approximately 500m to the east of the current BJM JV RTA dock project underway for LNGC. The pipe pile/sheet pile combiwall will require the installation of 266 each, 1.422 mm diameter pipe piles, 467 sheet piles, 107,000m3 of excavation and 244,000m3 of backfill.
The design will commence immediately and Stantec will be BJM’s designer. Site mobilization will start early May, followed by the demolition works and commencement of the North and West MOF Berths. Installation of cope beams and fender panels will follow once the walls have been constructed, for project handover on May 23, 2020, subject to possible additional works.
