Viterra Inc. is pleased to announce it intends to build a new high-throughput grain terminal in Rosser, Man. The facility will have a storage capacity of 34,000 metric tonnes, and will be able to load up to 134 railcars through a loop track.
“We commend Viterra for the continuous and substantial investments it has been making to enhance its asset network, including its new elevator at Rosser,” said Joan Hardy, Canadian Pacific Railway’s (CP) vice-president of sales and marketing, grain and fertilizers. “CP and Viterra share a longstanding commitment to Canadian agriculture.
“By modernizing our collective grain handling infrastructure and transportation network, together we are ensuring the grain supply chain remains strong to meet the growing needs of the agricultural industry today and in the years to come.”
Construction on the new facility will begin immediately and is slated for completion in the fall of 2021.
