Westshore Terminals Announces Equipment Failure at Shiploader 1

VANCOUVER, Jan. 12 /CNW/ - Westshore Terminals Investment Corporation (TSX: WTE-UN) ("Westshore") announced today that the gearbox that controls the boom movements on the shiploader at Berth 1 at the terminal has failed. This prevents Westshore from being able to use Berth 1 to ship coal, but does not impact any other aspect of the terminal operations. It is anticipated that it will take approximately two weeks to replace the damaged gearbox and complete the related repairs before Berth 1 resumes regular operations.

This downtime will result in reduced coal handling capacity at Westshore during this period to throughput levels that can be handled through Berth 2. Westshore has advised its customers and will work with them to minimize disruptions to its customers' shipments to the extent possible.
