Logistec celebrates in Contrecoeur

October 14 - The Logistec terminal in Contrec

"Our investment of nearly CAD12 million (USD10.68 million) will allow us to move larger volumes and work with a more diversified cargo base in Contrecœur. In addition to the bulk cargo that the terminal is known for, we have enhanced our ability to handle breakbulk, project cargo, and heavy lift," said Madeleine Paquin, president and ceo of Logistec.

Renovations to the site include installation of a new rail-mounted hopper and a Liebherr LPS 420 crane with a capacity of 120 metric tonnes in lift mode and 75 metric tonnes in grab mode. Logistec put in brand new tracks as well as an electrical supply and distribution system to suit the crane and hopper's modern designs, and make the terminal more energy efficient.
