Alliance Grain Terminal, Ltd. (AGT) Announces Completion of Remodeled West Coast Terminal
August 30th, 2018
VANCOUVER, BC – Paterson Grain and affiliated partners, are pleased to announce the grand Re-opening of Alliance Grain Terminal Ltd. (AGT) in Vancouver, BC. AGT recently completed an extensive ship loader and dock conveyor upgrade to its existing site. Mainland site construction work began just over a year ago and was completed last month, well within time to facilitate the upcoming peak export season. The official unveiling of the updated ship terminal will be celebrated in early Fall 2018.
Speed of loading, increased capacity, dust control and overall functionality were key priorities for the extensive remodel. The state of the art facility is now capable of loading up to 2000 metric tonnes per hour, can load during inclement weather and is able to load on two berths. The terminal also has an integrated dust suppression system, ensuring clean operations from receiving to shipping. Lastly, the terminal is fully capable of loading Panamax shipping vessels without the need to ‘spin’ the ship to complete loading. These upgrades will not only allow for improved efficiencies for both AGT and Paterson Grain’s customers, but will also assist in reducing vessel congestion in the harbor.
