Permit issued

On April 14, 2023 a project permit was issued to Pacific Coast Terminals Ltd. (“the Applicant”) to develop Additional Nitrogen Tank and Pad at 2300 Columbia Street, Port Moody, British Columbia on federal lands managed by the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority.

The project was approved subject to 30 permit conditions the Applicant must meet to ensure the project does not result in significant adverse environmental effects. Please see the Impact Assessment Act Registry for the Notice of Intent and Notice of Decision.

About the project

The Applicant will install an additional nitrogen tank adjacent to the existing nitrogen tank, in the tank farm rail unloading area. The new storage tank will be approximately 3 metres in diameter, and approximately 11 metres in height and would hold approximately 49,210 litres of liquid nitrogen. A concrete pad, approximately 25 square metres and 0.7 metres deep will be installed to support the tank. The new pad will be dowelled into the existing tank pad and supported by 4 standard pipe piles, installed at a 22 degree offset angle from vertical to a depth of 18 metres below grade. The new tank will then be anchor bolted into the concrete pad to secure it, connected to the existing nitrogen system and have protective bollards installed around it. The tank will act as extra storage capacity for the rail unloading process.
