Viterra upgrades Saskatchewan elevators

May 15, 2013, Regina, SK - Viterra is spending more than $20 million to upgrade four of its Saskatchewan grain terminals at White Star, Humboldt, Waldron and Ituna. The capital upgrades will result in increased rail capacity at the elevators, with White Star and Humboldt also having significant storage capacity added.

In a news release, Viterra says storage capacity will increase threefold at White Star and double at Humboldt. Rail capacity will expand at White Star, which is situated on the Carlton Trail Railway, a shortline railway that runs from Prince Albert to Saskatoon. Further rail capacity expansions at Viterra's Humboldt, Waldron and Ituna facilities, which are situated on CN operated rail lines, will also ensure a more efficient service provider for the farming communities in those areas.
