Esquimalt Gates Delivered To Point Hope Shipyard

Sea Business was contracted to move two old floating Esquimalt Gates from Esquimalt Harbour to Point Hope Shipyard. The project included designing and supplying a support system of Unifloats to reduce draft for the transit through Victoria Harbour and the Johnson Street Channel. The Unifloats were then used as “floating jacks” to further reduce the draft so that the gates could move ashore on the PHS marine railway for scrapping.
