Richardson International Ltd. late last week announced plans to build a new high-throughput grain elevator to replace its current facility in Dauphin, Manitoba.The new facility will include 10,000 metric tons of storage space to replace the 5,750 metric-ton wooden crib elevator currently at the site. CN serves the current facility and will serve the new elevator, which will feature a high-capacity grain dryer, cleaner and 104-car spot for trains.Construction is slated to begin in April 2015 and conclude in August 2016. Richardson International plans to build a temporary receiving and shipping system at the Dauphin site to provide customers with a continued delivery option during the 16-month construction schedule.The company acquired the Dauphin elevator in 2007 from Agricore United and intended to upgrade and enhance the facility as part of a continued, long-term investment in its network."[We] have an ongoing, aggressive commitment to furthering our investment in agriculture in Western Canada," said Darwin Sobkow, Richardson International's executive vice president of agribusiness operations and processing, in a press release. "We will continue to enhance our business and look for new opportunities to grow to meet the needs of our customers at home and in world markets."
