Cargill expands grain storage capacity
Cargill Limited will be significantly increasing storage capacity at its
local grain handling facility. This expansion will enhance existing grain
storage by 20,000 metric tonnes (mt) supported by additional car spotting and
cleaning capacity. Construction is set to begin over the next two months and
scheduled for completion in the fall of 2007.
The current facility, in its seventh year of operation, consists of a
50-railcar load spot, a grain dryer and 12,000 mt of existing storage space. The
expansion will increase the total storage capacity of the facility to 32,000 mt.
The location also houses a full-service crop inputs centre offering a full range
of agricultural products and services, including pesticides for crop protection,
fertilizer and seed, as well as Cargill's grain marketing and crop management
The storage facility is being designed and built by FWS
Construction Ltd., a Cargill strategic alliance partner known for its design and
construction work of inland grain terminals across western Canada and the
northern United States.
