Canadian G3 announces plans for two more new elevators in Alberta

20 May 20191 min reading

G3 announced that it will build new high-efficiency grain elevators near Irricana and in Stettler County, Alberta. Both new facilities will have a capacity of 42,000 tonnes and a railway loop track that can accommodate a 150-car unit train. Like G3’s other high-efficiency facilities in Western Canada, the elevators will be able to unload a Super B truck in less than five minutes. Construction on the new elevators is planned to start by this summer, pending final regulatory approvals. Construction is expected to be complete in 2020. “Central Alberta is one of the most important grain growing regions in Canada,” says G3 CEO Don Chapman. “We are excited to be able to provide farmers in the region a new choice to market their grain through modern facilities that will save them time and money.” G3 currently has four other high-efficiency elevators under construction: at Morinville, Wetaskiwin and Carmangay, Alberta and at Maidstone, Saskatchewan, as well as a new port terminal under construction in North Vancouver, British Columbia.
