G3 Global Holdings' affiliate G3 Terminal Vancouver has plans to build a new grain export terminal at the Port of Vancouver in British Columbia, the company announced yesterday.

The facility will be the first new grain terminal built at the port since the 1960s, according to a G3 press release.

The terminal will feature a rail loop track capable of holding 134-car trains and more than 180,000 metric tons of storage. In addition, the facility will be able to handle cereal grains, oilseeds, pulses and special crops supplied under a throughput agreement with G3 Canada Ltd.

Designed with a focus on high velocity receiving, shipping, and best-in-class environmental and safety standards, the new facility will represent the next generation in grain terminals, G3 officials said.

Bill Mooney, who has extensive Vancouver grain terminal management experience, will lead the terminal's development. Peter Kiewit Infrastructure Co. has been selected as the design-build contractor.

Construction is slated to begin in March 2017 and be completed in 2020.
