Richardson International, Vancouver BC – grain storage & distribution terminal
FWS is in the midst of a major expansion at Richardson International’s port terminal in North Vancouver. The project involves construction of an additional 80,000 MT of grain storage with slipform concrete silos. In addition, FWS is designing, procuring, and installing all the mechanical conveyances, which provide 1,450 MTPH distribution and reclaim to and from the new silos.
The FWS Project Team is also acting as construction manager for the civil, electrical and control packages, as well as the commissioning program, thereby offering a complete turn-key product.
This project involves the challenge of constructing directly adjacent to a functioning port terminal facility, which is operating at record capacity during construction. FWS’ execution program involves detailed planning and extensive communication with the owner in order to minimize disruption and down time to their terminal operations.
The project is on schedule for a start-up date in November 2015.
