SAFETY

The LNG marine shipping industry has an outstanding safety record. By the end of 2017 and since the first commercial shipment, LNG vessels have safely delivered more than 92,000 cargoes, according to the International Group of Liquefied Natural Gas Importers.

Tilbury Pacific’s commitment to safety along with rigorous international standards will help keep our workers and our neighbours safe at each stage of the project.

  • We will work closely with the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority and the Fraser River Pilots to ensure our operating procedures meet all requirements and are safe.
  • As part of new precautionary shipping safety regulations, the project will follow port guidance for safe navigation including:
    • Three escort tugs will be tethered to each laden LNG carrier
    • A safety exclusion zone will be maintained during vessel berthing and loading
    • Local pilots will be onboard to guide the ship

ENVIRONMENT

We’ve been talking to Indigenous communities and the broader community for several years and we’re responding by changing our design to lower the project’s impact on the local environment.

Our enhanced design reduces our potential impact on vegetation, wildlife and wildlife habitat. We’ve achieved this by:

  • Using tandem berths connected by a walkway to reduce the overall footprint
  • Using grating on the walkways to allow 70% more sunlight to pass through, minimizing shading effects to marine life
  • Using lamp shields and other best practice technologies to reduce light trespass

WesPac is committed to leaving the shoreline in better condition than we found it through creating and enhancing aquatic and terrestrial habitats and removing abandoned marine infrastructure.
