    DISMANTLEMENT OF THE M/V KATHRYN SPIRIT, REMOVAL OF THE TEMPORARY EMBANKMENT AND SITE REHABILITATION
    Beauharnois (Quebec)
    
    
    PROJECT DESCRIPTION
    The work to be carried out under this Request for Proposal is for the dismantling and disposal of the motor vessel (M/V) Kathryn Spirit, removal of the temporary embankment built in the winter of 2017 and restoration of the site. The M/V Kathryn Spirit was built in 1967 and operated as a merchant vessel under the Canadian flag for several years. It was abandoned in 2015 on its current site by a Mexican company that intended to tow it and dismantle it in Mexico.
    
    The work site is at the edge of Lake Saint-Louis, a natural widening in the St. Lawrence River. The vessel is located 300 m east of Beauharnois Canal. Ground access to the site will be made by the property owned by a third party with whom Canada concluded an access agreement for the duration of the work.
    
    The Contractor will have to do its own assessment of the best method for safely dismantling and disposing of the M/V Kathryn Spirit and removing the temporary embankments that support, protect and confine the vessel. However, they are prohibited from refloating and towing the vessel to dismantle it elsewhere than at the work site set out in the tender documents. The main issues of the project are the health and safety of the public and workers and environmental protection.
    
    Given the sensitivity of the site where the project is to take place, several environmental considerations will have to be respected by the contractor when carrying out the work. These include environmental restrictions for the protection of fish and birds.
    
    The contractor will have to dispose all hazardous materials found onboard the vessel in accordance with current applicable regulations. Despite the preventive pumping made by the Canadian Coast Guard, the vessel contains residual contaminants that mix with the water that gets inside. An inventory of potentially hazardous materials in the vessel was done in 2016. It was determined that asbestos, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), cleaning chemicals, oils and fats are contained in various parts of the vessel. Also, ozone-depleting substances, lead, mercury and compressed CO2 are probably present. Lastly, organotin compounds, cadmium, hexavalent chromium and radioactive materials are potentially present.
    
    The embankment is not currently sealed. Sealing it will not be required if the Contractor can plug the holes in the vessel’s hull and prevent water exchanges with the outside of the vessel. 
    
    Removal of the embankment involves the removal and disposal of all embankment components (stones, sheet piling, membrane and other materials). The only materials to be left in place are stones that are embedded in the seabed sediment, at the base of the embankment. It is important to note that the embankment and the M/V Kathryn Spirit are in an interdependent balance, meaning that the embankment supports the vessel and the vessel supports the embankment. The Contractor will assume full responsibility for the embankment, including any monitoring, maintenance and repairs that might be required. This responsibility will go into effect the moment the contract is awarded and will continue until the project is completed.
    
    Finally, the contractor will be responsible for restoring the site to its near original condition. This near original condition is considered to be the time at which the M/V Kathryn Spirit was not moored in Beauharnois, Quebec. The site restoration work shall take account of the natural bathymetry of Lake Saint Louis on either side of the work site.
