Reinforcement and development of dock No. 1, Port-Cartier Quai no1, Port-Cartier

ArcelorMittal Mines Canada operates a seaport on the rock of the Port-Cartier coast. The port has four docks to accommodate vessels and allow for the handling for iron ore and grain. Dock 1 is composed of sheet piles and four rows of double members and pennant lines. Given the critical deterioration of the original sheet pile of dock 1, ArcelorMittal wanted to have detailed engineering done for the complete rehabilitation of dock 1. This project is split into two sections: reinforcement of the dock and development at the dock.
