Port terminal expansion doubles capacity for North Vancouver facility...

A new $140-million grain annex project was commissioned late last year and involved construction of two slip form concrete annexes at the east end of the facility amid other work. The new storage annexes are 54m high and each can store 40,000 tonnes of product. To make way for them, three pellet storage bins were demolished. Other work included adding over 800 steel or timber piles; upgrading and installing new dust filter systems; building new covered silo roof conveyors and support towers; installing a new motor control centre on the annex roof; widening and upgrading the south access road; and reconfiguring the rail infrastructure.
