TRPA opens breakbulk terminal

The Trois-Rivières Port Authority (TRPA) has inaugurated its CAD27.3 million (USD21.1 million) breakbulk terminal in Québec, Canada.

Construction of Dock 9 was completed last December as part of the port's On Course for 2020 modernisation plan, put forward in 2008. 

In addition to the development of the breakbulk terminal, the CAD131.6 million (USD101.7 million) plan also included investments in other port terminals, in its road and rail network and in the development of green spaces. 

According to the port, the modernisation plan was completed three years ahead of schedule. 

HLPFI readers will recall, in December 2017, the TRPA and Logistec Stevedoring entered into an agreement for the leasing and operation of the breakbulk terminal. 

The terminal includes Piers 9, 10, and 11, with 36,000 sq m of outdoor storage plus three warehouses totalling 18,000 sq m.

"The investments made by the port of Trois-Rivières in its infrastructure, combined with those by Logistec in handling equipment and the training of personnel have made this new terminal a productive and competitive installation," said Michel Miron, vice president of operations at Logistec.
