G3 has announced the opening of G3 Terminal Vancouver, a state-of-the-art grain export terminal at the Port of Vancouver.
"G3 began with the vision of building a more efficient path from farmers' fields to global markets," said Don Chapman, President and CEO of G3. "We are very proud to see this vision become reality at G3 Terminal Vancouver, thanks to the safe and efficient work of our contractor Peter Kiewit Infrastructure Co. and with the help and cooperation of the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority."
Construction on the facility began in March, 2017 at the site in North Vancouver and is now complete. For the last several months, the facility has been taking in Prairie grain by rail and loading it onto ships. The facility is now in commercial operation.
The terminal can receive up to three 150-car trains on its loop track, which is unique among grain exporting terminals in Canada. G3 Terminal Vancouver's dock can accommodate vessels up to Capesize, and its three large ship loaders move grain on board at up to 6,500 tonnes per hour, setting a new industry standard. The facility has a storage capacity of 180,000 metric tonnes and receives and ships a variety of grains and oilseeds.
Due to Covid-19, G3 is setting aside plans for a grand opening event.
Last month, G3 also announced the opening of two new elevators in Alberta.Click here to see more...
