Perspective on Arctic Extremes: sealift operations in Canada’s Arctic…climate, environment, geography, socio-economic need


An arctic algorithm for basic marine infrastructure l.jpg
An “ sealift operations in Canada’s Arctic…Arctic Algorithm” for Basic Marine Infrastructure

Algorithm /al-guh-ri-th'm/ noun a set of simple instructions that combine to accomplish a task.


Big needs need realism l.jpg
Big Needs Need Realism sealift operations in Canada’s Arctic…

  • “… build it and they will come” strategies don’t work for intermodal supply chains and infrastructure development.

  • Benefits of single mega projects must be balanced against the greatest good for the great number in the short and medium term…

  • Learn from unsuccessful examples in south of poor project planning driven by politics, not demand and priorities…

  • We need to focus on customer demands, identify needs and set priorities.


Common conditions l.jpg
Common Conditions sealift operations in Canada’s Arctic…

Weather: Extreme climates, winds, currents, and short navigational season

Communities: Remote, lack of marine infrastructure, no safe or secure work areas, customer dependence on marine transportation for re-supply.

Mining: generally remote and distant from population centres.

Government Contracting: Services are regulated monopolies by way of restrictive winner take all regional contract awards… limits customer choice, reduces competition and increases costs.

Tides: many communities have high tides resulting in operational delays.

Navigational Charts: Inadequate hydrographic navigational charts and data - Approximately 10% of the Canadian Arctic is adequately charted.

Mooring Buoys and Navigational Aids: Deficiency exists – few Navaids and 1 Mooring Buoy in Nunavut.

New realities of the arctic sealift l.jpg
New Realities of the Arctic Sealift sealift operations in Canada’s Arctic…

  • Shift towards multi purpose container vessels with lightering operations, as opposed to traditional tug and barge only operations.

  • Solutions have to work for all users
