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.
