Temporary floating wharf for Baffinland

Temporary floating wharf for Baffinland

A challenge requiring Ocean’s expertise

Baffin Island, 2008 – In collaboration with Logistec and Fednav, Ocean Marine Works participates in a complex project for Baffinland Iron Mines Corporation. Located in Milne Inlet, the project faces numerous challenges:

  • The equipment has to be set up and taken down in record time (5 days, 8 workers).
  • The temporary wharf requires adequate bearing capacity.
  • Extreme conditions (violent winds, six-foot tide range and frequent docking of barges carrying tons of ore) require a solid structure.
  • Dredging, blasting and pouring cement are prohibited in order to preserve the pristine condition of the site.

These challenges are successfully met thanks to the collaboration and professionalism of everyone involved.
