VANCOUVER, B.C. — The Vancouver Port Authority (VPA) has awarded the construction contract for the marine works portion of the Deltaport Third Berth expansion to Deltaport Constructors, a project-specific joint venture between Vancouver Pile and Dredge, and Graham Construction and Engineering.
Graham Construction is a Delta-based company. The $195 million contract encompasses the dredge, fill and berth work associated with the expansion. Deltaports terminal operator, TSI Terminal Systems, will tender the terminal infrastructure portion separately.
The Deltaport expansion received the go-ahead from the federal Minister of Environment in early November and has now received authorization from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. In addition to the marine works contract, the port will also invest between $20 and $30 million in environmental mitigation initiatives.
We are confident in the growth of container trade through this gateway and know that this project represents an excellent long-term investment, both for OTPP as well as our local and national economy, said Norman Stark, president and CEO of TSI.
