Port of Quebec Development Project: New Role for Don Krusel

Don Krusel has been named managing director of the Port of Quebec’s project to build a container terminal, Mario Girard, President and CEO of the Quebec Port Authority (QPA) announced earlier this week.

According to an official statement, QPA has expansion plans in the Beauport sector that would see 17 hectares of graded land added to adjacent available lands, for an additional 610 meter wharf line with a depth of 16 meters.

Under the plan, the port will use the new land to build a new deepwater container terminal.

Fully intermodal with direct access to major rail and highway networks, the Port of Quebec is well positioned to serve as a gateway to the vast Great Lakes trade corridor.

Mr. Krusel is a major figure in the North American port world. He was the president and CEO of the Prince Rupert Port Authority for 25 years.

With this appointment, Mr. Krusel will be fully engaged in managing the container terminal – a major expansion project for the Port of Quebec.
