Pier 17 expansion

Status: Project is Complete

THE RIGHT PLAN. THE RIGHT TIME.

This is an exciting time for the Port of St. John's. After consultation with industry and port users and a rigorous planning period, we're ready to begin construction on a new expansion for our busy, working port: Pier 17 West.

FLEXIBLE. FUNCTIONAL. FUTURE FRIENDLY.

The design for our new finger pier and supporting landside improvements will maximize berthing capacity, add enhancements not currently available, and increase efficiencies between the new pier and exisisting port facilities. This will allow us to better serve the needs of our offshore supply and service customers, other port users, and create opportunities to support growth in the future.

OPERATIONAL BENEFITS.

  • Two new operational berths will be able to support a wide variety of offshore energy-related vessels; equipped with all the mooring hardware required for safe and secure berthing 
  • Reduced waiting times for vessels seeking berthage
  • Increased berthage capacity will result in lower emissions and less fuel consumption
  • Shore power at each berth will allow vessels to plug in and turn off their generators, further reducing emissions
  • Increased wharf and landside capacity to accommodate cranes and heavy equipment

SEAPORTS DELIVER PROSPERITY.

The project will result in new jobs during the construction phase and ongoing employment at the port in support of our customers. A more efficient port means more business for our city, our province, and our country.

As one of Canada's most modern and financially sustainable ports, we remain grateful to our many stakeholders for providing the foundation for success. We have an important, far-reaching regional economic role and a responsiblity to provide world-class, efficient port services, and we thank the port community for contributing to its many achievements.

POSITIVE CHANGE. POSITIVE IMPACT.

This phase of the project has been carefully planned and we are confident that there will be minimal impact on our residential neighbours, with construction occurring mostly on weekdays. In addition, the project will not obstruct access to the Terry Fox monument and surrounding park in any way.

MORE TO COME.
