Two new elevators coming to Saskatchewan
By CNW Group
G3 Canada Limited (G3) announced that it will construct two new primary elevators in Saskatchewan. The sites are located approximately five kilometres north of Melville on Highway 10, and seven kilometres west of Saskatoon on Highway 14.
The new facilities will feature high capacity drags under the driveshed, enabling trucks to unload quickly. Both facilities are being constructed on CN Rail with 134-car loop tracks, providing G3 with rail access to its Thunder Bay and St. Lawrence River terminals, and to G3 Terminal Vancouver once it becomes operational in 2020. The new elevators at Melville and Saskatoon are being constructed with 34,000 tonnes and 42,000 tonnes of storage capacity respectfully.
Construction on the new elevators will commence in April, and both are slated for completion prior to the 2018 harvest.
