Temporary works removal at River Water Intake project

Posted by: Uzo Ojimadu Comments: 0 1

Refurbishment of the existing River Water Intake structure for the LNG Canada Project will soon be complete and temporary structures that were installed to facilitate this work will be removed. This includes removal of in-water sheet and pipe piles as well as installation of filter rock and scour protection within the river. Please be aware that boats will be utilized in the river to support these operations.

As part of the LNG processing plant design, water will be sourced from the Kitimat River and used for multiple areas of the project during both construction and operations.

This requires the refurbishment of the existing in-water intake, a new pumphouse, a new substation, and a 2.5 kilometre, 30” high density polyethylene pipeline to transport water to site.

The in-water work was supported by installing a cofferdam around the structure and dewatering. A temporary pipe pile trestle was installed upstream of the Eurocan intake to provide access for installation of the cofferdam and log deflector structure.

Construction activities will continue to take place from 6 a.m. – 10 p.m.—seven days per week—and will continue through Q3 of 2021.

All permits, safety and environmental plans will be in place. Public access will be restricted in the area.
