WINNIPEG, MANITOBA, CANADA — G3 announced plans to build new grain elevators in Alberta and Saskatchewan, Canada.
G3 Vermilion, Alberta, will have a capacity of 34,000 tonnes and is located on CN rail while G3 Swift Current, Saskatchewan, will have a capacity of 42,000 tonnes and is located on CP rail.
Construction will begin in early 2020, pending final regulatory approvals, with completion in 2021.
Both new elevators will be built with the same high-efficiency features as the company’s other new facilities in Western Canada: a loop track that can quickly load a 150-car unit train, and the ability to unload a Super-B truck in less than five minutes.
“G3 has been steadily growing to serve some of the most productive grain growing regions in Western Canada,” said Don Chapman, chief executive officer of G3. “We’re happy to add Vermilion and Swift Current to our network and give farmers there a fast and efficient option for moving their grain to market.”
G3 currently has high-efficiency elevators under construction at Wetaskiwin, Morinville, Carmangay, Irricana and Stettler County, Alberta. G3 Terminal Vancouver, a new grain export terminal, is under construction in North Vancouver, British Columbia, and will open in 2020.
