G3’s New high efficiency elevators open for business

G3 Canada Limited today announced the official opening of two new high efficiency grain terminals in Pasqua, Saskatchewan, and Glenlea, Manitoba.
 
G3 Pasqua marked the occasion earlier today with a grand opening event where G3 customers, staff, industry partners and government officials gathered to celebrate. G3 Glenlea will hold a similar celebration in the fall.
 
Construction of both facilities began in the fall of 2014, and both were completed on time and on schedule earlier this year. Like all of G3’s new facilities on the Prairies, both G3 Pasqua and G3 Glenlea feature 134-car loop tracks capable of loading a full unit train while in continuous motion. Both facilities also feature high-capacity drags under the driveways which enable farmers to unload a full super-B in five minutes or less, without moving. FWS was the general contractor for both projects.
 
“This is a significant occasion for G3, and these facilities are a great reflection of our overall vision, which is to build a smarter path from farmers’ fields to global markets,” said Brett Malkoske, G3 Vice-President, Business Development & Communications.
