HUSKY ENERGY GRAVING DOCK CONSTRUCTION

As part of Husky Energy’s White Rose Extension Project, work at this 20 hectare site in Placentia, N.L. commenced in late 2013.  Dexter Construction was responsible for:

  • Mass excavation of approximately 1.3 million cubic meters of material behind a natural coastal berm, which was hauled and dumped into nearby pond for infill
  • Installation of temporary and permanent de-watering systems around the perimeter of the graving dock, including 83 dewatering wells (830 L/sec), 33 piezometers, 2 lift stations, 1,000 meters of HDPE dewatering pipe and 2 sedimentation ponds c/w geomembrane lining
  • Construction of over 27,000 square meters of soil-cement-bentonite cut-off walls to minimize water flow into the dock area
  • Installation of permanent power distribution systems
  • Construction and renewal of 1,500 meters of new site access road

Dexter’s work on the graving dock construction was successfully completed in 2015.
