Valleyfield secures funding

The port of Valleyfield in Canada has received a CAD3.5 million (USD2.67 million) grant from the Québec government to support its marine transportation infrastructure investments.

The contribution will help the port implement its development plan, which includes an increase in accessible paved staging and warehousing capacities. Funds will be allocated to enhance the port’s security gate and increase truck weighing capabilities.

The planned berth 8 project will allow the port to accommodate the increasing size of general cargo vessels entering the seaway.

Frank Dunn, president of Valleyfield-based Valport Maritime Services, said: “Canada’s largest ‘small’ port just got larger which has dramatically enhanced our capacity and productivity.

“New bulk and project cargo clients are amazed at our growth and ability to accommodate their projects.”

The total cost of the port’s projects is estimated at CAD7.2 million (USD5.5 million).
