GODERICH, ONTARIO, CANADA — Parrish & Heimbecker, Limited (P&H) finished two new infrastructure upgrades at its Goderich Terminal in Goderich, Ontario, Canada.
The first is a new vessel-loading spout that has dust suppression technology. The new spout monitors and controls the flow of grain at the discharge end through computerized sensors. From the deck, P&H operators can manage a concentrated cylinder of grain, placing it much closer to the bottom of the vessel and reducing unwanted dust emissions.
The second is a mooring dolphin, which will allow vessels of all configurations to receive and discharge their cargos at the terminal, while maintaining safe maneuvering within the inner harbor.
The entire site layout was reworked to handle larger class vessels and the dolphin provides security and stability for vessels at berth. Collaboration between P&H, Goderich Port Manager Corp. and Goderich town staff took place on the design.
“We thank P&H for being so community minded, great corporate citizens of Goderich and for being part of the fabric that makes Goderich a special place; especially with the iconic elevators standing tall at the harbor’s edge,” said John Grace, mayor of Goderich.
According to Sosland Publishing’s 2020 Grain & Milling Annual, P&H has a total of 20 grain storage facilities with a total licensed grain storage capacity of 23.4 million bushels.
P&H is a Canadian, family owned agri-business, with roots in the agriculture industry dating back to 1909.
