Richardson building new grain elevator in Saskatchewan
By Top Crop Manager
On June 14, Richardson Pioneer Ltd. announced plans to build a new high-throughput grain elevator in Carmichael, Sask. Construction began earlier this month and is expected to be completed by the fall of 2022.
The new elevator will include 46,000 metric tonnes of storage capacity with a loop track rail design capable of loading 175 high cube rail cars. The facility will feature high-speed receiving and load out, with a high capacity grain cleaning system. Immediately following completion of the new elevator, Richardson will proceed with the construction of crop inputs assets, including a high-speed fertilizer blender with storage and a 10,000-square foot AWSA-certified warehouse – both of which will be fully operational by the fall of 2023.
