The Port of Sheet Harbour is a deep-water, ice-free harbour with no air draft restrictions. 15 metres water depth at the dock face, with additional depth available with fendering.

RJMI has a robust environmental stewardship program to prevent the accidental release of contaminants into the ground, sea and air. While plasma cutting is employed in some circumstances, we utilize mechanical shearing and diamond saw cutting in our dismantling operations.


Our facility can accommodate vessels up to 800' with flexibility to extend both vessel dimensions and tonnage as required.

In 2021 we received the Mobile Offshore Production Unit (MOPU) Deep Panuke from our client SBM Offshore. The structure was delivered to our site via BOA Barge and jacked up in position over an engineered sub-sea rock mattress. RJMI completed a 6 acre infill with 250,000 tons of aggregate from a local quarry, upon which Deep Panuke was jacked down.

With work underway, this green ship recycling project will be successfully completed in Q1 2023.
