Prince Rupert Port Authority puts Northland Terminal Pilings repair work out for bid


Some repair work on the Northland Terminal pilings is set to 
get underway this summer

With there being no plans to receive cruise ships in Prince Rupert this season, the Prince Rupert Port Authority will make use of the absence of the giant vessels to take on some much needed remediation work for the Northland Terminal pilings.

Earlier this week the Port posted a Request for Proposals with the BC Bid website for work on the terminal infrastructure, as well as to decommission an area of mooring near the Atlin Terminal.

As part of their documentation towards the work the Prince Rupert Port Authority notes the following:

Northland Terminal is comprised of eight mooring/breasting dolphins and six trestle piles, a steel/concrete float with two surrounding contract floats, a terminal building supported by eight steel piles, and a self- adjusting gangway with gangway tower. 

The Piles and Float at Northland Terminal have experienced significant corrosion and need repairs. A former float mooring structure at Atlin Terminal is beyond repair and shall be decommissioned.

The timeline for the project would see the successful bidder receive a contract award by late May with the work to be completed by September of this year.

The full documentation for the project can be explored from the BC Bid website.

Cooridnation of the bids process is being handled by Jamie Malthus Director, Asset Management for the Prince Rupert Port Authority.
