Viterra to revitalize elevator presence around Biggar, Sask.

Viterra has announced it is starting construction on a new grain elevator with a loop track at Biggar, Sask.

“For the last several years, we have been making targeted investments across our asset network to ensure we’re aligned with our operating environment and able to provide the high level of service our customers expect from a leader like Viterra,” says Kyle Jeworski, president and CEO for Viterra North America. “We’re pleased to be revitalizing our presence in the Biggar area, and making a long term commitment to our customers through this significant investment.”

The current Viterra facility at Biggar is on the Canadian National railway line and has a capacity of 11,050 metric tonnes, according to the Canadian Grain Commission.

The new, larger elevator will be built on the north side Biggar, with service from Canadian Pacific, and storage capacity of 34,000 metric tonnes.

“We commend Viterra for its steady and substantial investments across its asset network, including its new facility at Biggar,” says Joan Hardy, CP’s vice-president of sales and marketing for grain and fertilizers. “As industry partners, Viterra and CP are focused on strengthening Canada’s agriculture supply chain through targeted infrastructure investments. This project is the latest example of our commitment to Canadian farmers, and moving their crops in a timely and efficient manner.”

Viterra says it plans to complete construction on the new elevator in early 2022.
