The Seaspan Vancouver Shipyards was part of a large redevelopment project to launch the rebirth of the West Coast shipbuilding industry. As a part of the modernization project, four mobile container platforms were built. Each tower will house six containers to be used in the construction of off shore marine vessels. The containers will house everything from offices, crew facilities, and storage.
Fabrication to erection was completed in just a few months.
The mobile container platforms and towers were originally slated to be painted; however, Seaspan eventually decided to hot-dip galvanize the steel as they are located along the oceans edge on Vancouvers North Shore. As galvanizing was an afterthought, all the work had to be done in mere weeks fabrication to erection was completed in just a few months.
Under a new contract, Seaspan will build seven vessels for the Canadian Coast Guard and Royal Canadian Navy, and more government and non-government shipbuilding projects are expected in the future. The resurgence of the shipbuilding industry will bring many new jobs to North Vancouver. With the completion of the modernization project the Vancouver Shipyards were transformed into the most modern facility in North America. By specifying hot-dip galvanized steel, Seaspan can rest assured the Vancouver Shipyards will be a centerpiece in the shipbuilding and ship repair on the West Coast for generations.
