Viterra, Canada's grain industry leader hosted an official grand reopening event at its Pacific Terminal at the Port of Vancouver. The event recognized the successful completion of Viterra's 100 million dollar investment at the terminal, including a new ship loader and other state of the art enhancements. The enhancements at Pacific Terminal will create the ability to handle in excess of 6 million metric tonnes annually. It also allows for the loading of "post-Panamax" vessels, the largest vessels capable of navigating through the recently expanded Panama Canal. The majority of the company's focus at Pacific will be on pulse crops, with the upgrades supporting the efficient handling of delicate products. According to the statement of the company, this involves the use of a fully enclosed system with soft handling of products direct to the vessel. In addition to the new ship loader, other improvements include the installation of new bulk weighers, upgrades to shipping conveyors and rotary cleaners, and improved electrical and dust control systems.
