Peter Kiewit Sons ULC was awarded the contract to design and construct the new state-of-the-art grain export terminal, which will be the first new grain terminal constructed at the Port of Vancouver since the 1960s. When completed, this terminal will be the largest of its kind in Western North America.
The greenfield/brownfield site project consists of loop track for receiving grains by rail (capable of holding three 124-car trains), bulk scales, 48 slipformed storage silos, cleaning house, screening load-out, new dock and ship loaders, piling, electrical, controls, mechanical, civil, structural, site development, utilities and start-up and test.
The project will handle 8 million tonnes of grain annually once it is built. Construction is currently underway.
