A major milestone in the ongoing expansion of the Port of Prince Rupert Fairview Container Terminal was reported yesterday by the port officials.
The Phase II North container terminal expansion project, launched in the first quarter of 2015, is now more than 75% complete, the port announced.
“Prince Rupert’s container business has experienced rapid growth since the opening of Fairview Container Terminal. This project is the continued evolution of our fast and reliable trans-Pacific service,” said Don Krusel, President & CEO of the Port of Prince Rupert.
The expanded terminal will include a second deep-water berth, three additional gantry cranes, and land reclamation to further expand the container yard.
The next significant milestone for the project is expected in March 2017 with the arrival of three Malacca-max dock gantry cranes to make Prince Rupert big ship ready.
