The Ice Boom Broke! Now What?? Understanding and Managing Ice During the Construction of the Keeyask Generating Station
Mike Morris, M.Sc., P.Eng.
Understanding and managing ice on the mighty Nelson River in northern Manitoba is critical to reduce ice related risks during the construction of the Keeyask Generating station. Years of monitoring and modelling of the ice processes along the river indicated that an ice boom would be required to protect the construction areas, but what happens when the ice boom fails? This presentation describes the ice processes, the ice boom design and construction and some of the actions that were required when the ice boom failed.
