Pacific Terminals (Viterra) Annex 1 and 2 Vacuum System upgrade
In February 2021, a project permit was issued to Viterra Pacific Elevators Limited, to upgrade the Pacific Terminals Annex 1 and 2 Vaccuum System, located at 1803 Stewart Street, Vancouver, British Columbia on federal lands managed by the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority.
The project was approved subject to 32 permit conditions that Viterra Pacific Elevators Limited must meet to ensure the project does not result in significant adverse environmental effects.
About the project
Viterra Pacific Elevators Limited are proposing to upgrade a terminal dust control vacuum system on the north east corner of the Annex 1 roof, located at 1803 Stewart Street, Vancouver. A primary separator unit will be installed above a storage bin to collect recovered material, which will subsequently be processed in the terminal reclaim system for recovery of valuable grain. A secondary separator, filtering the finer particles, will discharge into a bin that will feed into the existing dust transportation system. The new equipment will have a footprint of approximately 60 square metres combined. The secondary separator will be 4 metres high and will be external to Annex 1. The new equipment will be shielded by a partial acoustic barrier to minimize noise impacts. The construction period is anticipated to run for three to four months with targeted completion at the end of June 2021.
