Neptune Bulk Terminal Canada
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of Canada.|
The terminal has an annual coal capacity of 12.5 million tonnes. An expansion of the coal export facilities is proposed, known as the Allison project.
The terminal is located on Vancouver’s North Shore and is part of Port Metro Vancouver. It sits on 71 acres of land on Vancouver’s Burrard Inlet between the First and Second Narrows bridges.
The port handles metallurgical and thermal coal, potash, grains, animal feed, bulk fertilizers, and canola oil.
Coal is handled at the terminal through separate handling facilities. Neptune exported 8.1 million tonnes of coking coal in 2013. Neptune plans to expand annual capacity from 12.5 to 18.5 million tonnes, following a project permit issued by Port Metro Vancouver in January 2013. The expansion work, known as the Allison project, consists of a new railcar dumper building and conveyor system, a new shiploader at Berth 1, and an additional rail alignment.
