WINNIPEG, Dec. 13, 2018 /CNW/ - G3 Canada Limited is continuing to expand its grain origination network in Western Canada with the addition of a new primary elevator near Morinville, Alberta, the company announced today.
G3 Morinville is designed for speed and efficiency. Like our other new elevators in Western Canada, it will be able to unload trucks in less than 5 minutes. It will load 150-car trains under continuous motion on a loop track system, keeping grain moving to market.
The new facility is located 2.4 km west of Morinville on the north side of Highway #642. Construction will begin shortly, subject to receiving regulatory approval, and is expected to be complete in 2020.
G3 Morinville will have a capacity of 42,000 tonnes and is located on CN Rail. It is well placed to move grain to G3 Terminal Vancouver, a next-generation grain export facility that will also become operational in 2020.
"This is part of a growing network of high-efficiency facilities that is speeding up the movement of grain in Canada and around the world," says G3 CEO Don Chapman. "But it all starts with the farmers, and we're looking forward to putting our industry-leading efficiency and customer service to work to earn their business at G3 Morinville."
Construction is underway on new G3 elevators in Carmangay and Wetaskiwin, Alberta and Maidstone, Saskatchewan. G3 recently celebrated the grand openings of new elevators in Melville and Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
