Phase 2 North Completed at Prince Rupert Port

Business & Finance

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.
