DUBAI : ΑECOM, an infrastructure consulting firm, has been selected by DP World to perform a feasibility and design study for the construction of the Port of Prince Rupert‘s second container terminal.
The second terminal is expected to double the overall container capacity of the Canadian port, adding at least two million TEUs per year.
“We’re incredibly pleased to work with DP World, and the Prince Rupert Port Authority on this exciting step towards the development of a new container terminal in Prince Rupert,” stated Marc Devlin, Chief Executive of AECOM’s Canada region.
The terminal is planned to be a low-impact and all-electric facility that will integrate cutting-edge technologies with an intermodal operating model to support an efficient and sustainable transportation network.
“This second terminal will also set a new standard for sustainable operations – with minimal environmental and community impact,” said Maksim Mihic, CEO & General Manager of DP World Canada.
