Fairview Terminal Phase 2A Expansion
Prince Rupert, BC
Bel Pacific Contracting
The Fairview Terminal Phase 2A Expansion Project added a second vessel berth and expanded the container terminal’s annual throughput capacity from 850,000 to 1.35 million TEUs.
The northern berth was extended by 155 metres in length and 40 metres in width, while the seabed was dredged to ensure sufficient depth. It also added three new big ship-ready Malacca-max cranes for servicing the second berth. The terminal was expanded by 11 hectares to increase the speed of services, while the on-dock rail space was extended by 6,000 feet.
Adventure Construction, under contract to Bel Pacific, provided all aggregates and asphalt paving on the expanded container yard. Key challenges on this project included the design of the sub-base, asphalt mix design for point load bearing capacity, and tight schedule constraints for port operations.
