Viterra upgrades Alberta grain handling system

Nov. 5, 2013, Regina, SK - Viterra is investing over $34 million into its Alberta elevator network through two upcoming projects.

The first is the construction of a new high throughput grain terminal near Grimshaw, Alta. The concrete facility will be developed with a 104 railcar loading capability and approximately 30,000 tonnes of grain storage. Preliminary site work is planned to start this fall.

The second project involves the expansion of Viterra's grain terminal in Grassy Lake, Alta. Storage capacity will increase by 14,000 tonnes to 36,500 tonnes, along with operational improvements to increase logistical flexibility and efficiency.

This is the latest in a series of infrastructure improvements by Viterra. In May, the company announced that it is investing more than $20 million to upgrade four of its Saskatchewan grain terminals at White Star, Humboldt, Waldron and Ituna. It has also recently completed similar expansions at Gull Lake, Sask. and Fairlight, Sask.
