G3 has announced plans to build two new grain elevators in Western Canada.
The new locations will be at Rycroft, Alta., and Melfort, Sask., with each elevator having a capacity of 42,000 tonnes.
Construction will begin later this year, pending final regulatory approvals, with completion targeted for early 2023. The new facilities are both be located on CN Rail.
The new elevators will be built with the same high-efficiency features as G3’s other new facilities in Western Canada, featuring a loop track that can quickly load a 150-car unit train, the ability to unload a Super-B truck in less than five minutes, and excellent road access for area producers and rail links to export markets.
Don Chapman, CEO of G3, says they are excited to extend their network of high efficiency facilities to the farming communities around Rycroft and Melfort.
“G3 is keeping grain moving to market, and that means more delivery opportunities for our farmer customers, and faster service which saves farmers time and money,” Chapman says.
G3 currently has 17 grain elevators across Western Canada.
