Port Terminal Expansion

Port Terminal Expansion - Vancouver, Wash.

CLIENT
Port of Vancouver

Ibberson was awarded the contract to provide engineering, construction management and procurement services for the modernization and expansion of the port terminal in Vancouver.

The project enhancements resulted in increasing the terminal’s loading capacities from 1,100 metric tons per hour (mtph) to 2,200 mtph. The dock facility new accommodates vessels up to 244 meters in length, providing 12.2 meters of draft.

Major structures and systems involved in this project included:

  • A 200-meter ship loading dock with moveable bridge for barge passage
  • A 2,200-mtph gantry shiploader with dust suppressor
  • 4 graded-lot shipping bins, with a 4,535-metric-ton capacity
  • A weighing, sampling and transfer system with a capacity of 2,200 mtph
  • Shipping legs with capacities of 1,100 and 1,360 mtph and longshoreman building

The addition of new graded-lot shipping bins provide 4,540 metric tons of increased storage capacity; the terminal is now licensed with capacity of 147,000 metric tons. Other reworked areas included the rail receiving system, barge receiving system, dust control and collection system and major upgrading of the electrical substation and distribution system. The rail receiving system consisted of a new hopper car unloading pit and enclosure, a new hydraulic car progressor and hopper car gate opener, and a new 1,100‑mtph weighing and transfer system. A new 1,360-mtph receiving leg and a new 1,100-mtph transfer leg were also added. Five elevator legs were installed outside the building with explosion relief panels.
