Winning the bid to help develop Pangnirtung Harbour’s Small Craft Harbour docking needs in Canada’s far north was an exciting and challenging project commissioned by the Government of Canada and the community of Pangnirtung. Between 2013 and 2018 Seaco Marine built three two hundred foot docking systems to meet the challenges of extreme tidal action, in Pangnirtung, Nunavut in the Cumberland Sound.
Pre-drilled, fully assembled, inspected and approved in Winnipeg, the individual docks sections were then crated with their corresponding hardware and instructions and trucked to the Port of Montreal for sea transport to Pangnirtung Harbour. Contractors from the Pangnirtung community perform full assembly of all sections and their connections. Each two hundred foot dock required six anchoring systems by Seaflex Mooring Systems tethered to its own six by six foot by one foot concrete anchor (5000 lbs) on the ocean floor.
