Prince Rupert Container Terminal Set for Expansion

Prince Rupert Container Terminal Set for Expansion

Maher Terminals Holding Corp., the operator of the Fairview Container Terminal at Canada’s Port of Prince Rupert, will proceed with expansion of the 7-year-old facility, increasing its container capacity by 500,000 TEUs.

The project will provide a second deep-water berth, four additional gantry cranes, and land reclamation to further expand the container yard.

On-dock rail trackage will also be expanded through densification of the current track configuration, which will be supported by a rubber-tired gantry crane operation. The terminal expansion will increase the capacity to over 1.3m TEUs annually, and is scheduled for completion in mid-2017.

Maher Terminals awarded the construction contract to FRPD-BEL Gateway Joint Venture as the prime contractor.
