The Port of Prince Rupert and DP World officials announced this week that the Fairview Container Terminal expansion project is now 75 percent completed, a milestone in their effort to increase the port's capacity.Launched in first-quarter 2015, the Phase II North container terminal expansion is on schedule to increase annual capacity at the Prince Rupert, British Columbia, container terminal to more than 1.35 million 20-foot-equivalent units (TEUs) by third-quarter 2017, port officials said in a press release."Prince Rupert's container business has experienced rapid growth since the opening of Fairview Container Terminal. This project is the continued evolution of our fast and reliable trans-Pacific service," said Don Krusel, the port's president and chief executive officer.The Fairview Container Terminal is served by CN. The expansion will include a second deep-water berth, three additional gantry cranes and land reclamation to further expand the container yard. On-dock rail capacity will be expanded by densifying the current track configuration, which will be supported by a rubber-tired gantry crane operation.The project's next milestone is expected in March 2017 with the arrival of three Malacca-max dock gantry cranes to make the Prince Rupert port "big ship ready." Each crane is equipped with a reach of 25 containers wide and is capable of working the largest vessels in the world with a carrying capacity of 20,000-plus TEUs, port officials said.
