Phase 2 North Completed at Prince Rupert Port

The Port of Prince Rupert can now accommodate the largest container vessels in the world, following DP World’s expansion of its Fairview Container Terminal that increases the port’s container-handling capacity to 1.35 million TEUs annually.

The conclusion of the two-year “Phase 2 North” expansion project was celebrated yesterday by shippers, supply chain partners, local labor and First Nations and community leaders with a ribbon cutting and community open house attended by thousands, the Port of Prince Rupert said in its latest release.

The terminal now includes a second vessel berth serviced by three new “big ship ready” Malacca-max cranes, allowing 20,000+ TEU vessels to access the terminal through one of the deepest port harbors in the world.

In addition, 6,000 more feet of on-dock rail and an 11 hectare increase to the terminal footprint will add even more speed and reliability to terminal services, the port said.
