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 products.

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.
