Boskalis has reached an important milestone in Canada with the first volume of dredge material being disposed into the Rio Tinto Dredged Disposal Site (DDS).

It was a multidisciplinary team effort that required local and international expertise, LNG Canada reported yesterday.

According to LNG Canada, this 4-month construction journey carried out in compliance with the environmental permits included: an environmental monitoring team; the arrival of the Transshelf, a heavy-lift semi-submersible vessel delivering the dredge equipment; and local subcontracting for the DDS construction and pipeline fabrication.

Earlier this year, Boskalis was hired as the main dredging contractor for the development of the first large-scale LNG export facility in Kitimat, Canada (LNG Canada).

Overall, the work includes the removal and remediation of contaminated and non-contaminated sediments at the site of the future facility in order to provide the required physical space and marine access for the construction of LNG Canada.

For this project, Boskalis has deployed a fleet of vessels including medium-sized trailing suction hopper dredger, cutter suction dredger, backhoe dredger and a crane barge.

The company expects that the dredging activities for this project will continue into 2020.
