HISTORIC MILESTONE AT FSD WITH THE ARRIVAL OF THE M/V “LONDON EXPRESS” – August 26th, 2015

We are excited to report that Fraser Surrey Docks reached a Historic Milestone on August 26, 2015 with the much anticipated arrival of the M/V “London Express”. At 294 meters in length (the equivalent of 3 football fields end to end), she is the largest vessel to have ever docked at Fraser Surrey Docks and sail up the Fraser River. Given her size, she glided in majestically with virtually no wake. Her draft max is 13.63m and designed draft is 12m; she arrived at 9.5m and sailed at 9.9m. Her service speed runs at an impressive 24.5 knots, her range is 21,500kms and her crew consists of 6 officers and 19 deck hands. Captain Markus Droste was very impressed with the River Pilots professionalism and the warm welcome from FSD management and the ILWU brothers and sisters, and of course the owner’s reps from Hapag-Lloyd, Ben Puehse and Leo Landry. A couple years ago, few people would have predicted that a 4,700 TEU container vessel like this would ever be able to transit the Fraser River and berth at FSD. The arrival of the M/V “London Express” shows that boundaries can be tested and progress is possible. A special thanks to the Port Metro Vancouver, the Fraser River Pilots and the Pacific Pilots Authority for working with FSD and Hapag-Lloyd to receive this vessel. Safety is paramount at FSD and the safe navigation and handling of this vessel was of top priority.

Please see attached, a few pictures of the vessel, captain and our friends Leo and Ben from Hapag-Lloyd.

Fraser Surrey Docks Welcomes BC Government Decision on Texada

April 22nd, 2014

Fraser Surrey Docks (FSD) welcomes the decision by the B.C. Ministry of Energy and Mines that will allow for the transhipment of additional coal by Texada Quarrying.

Under a proposal being reviewed by Port Metro Vancouver, Texada Quarrying would receive coal by barge from FSD for loading on to deep sea vessels for export to Asian markets.

“Lafarge is a good partner with a solid track record which has been operating safely and responsibly and in full compliance with environmental regulations for more than 60 years,” said Jeff Scott, President and CEO of Fraser Surrey Docks.
At the request of Port Metro Vancouver, FSD and its independent experts continue their work to better understand any potential human health impacts of the proposed Direct Coal Transfer Facility.

FSD and its partners have already incorporated further dust control enhancements to the project including the elimination of a coal stockpile, a second re-spray facility to re-apply a “topping agent” to loaded rail cars and a commitment to apply similar binding agents to loaded barges.

“We are confident our proposed facility will handle coal with no significant impacts on the community or the environment, and our goal is to reassure the regulator and our neighbours that this project will be undertaken in the safest most responsible way possible,” said Scott.
