CWB begins construction on second grain elevator

CWB (formerly the Canadian Wheat Board) has started construction on its second state-of-the-art Prairie grain elevator in less than three weeks.

The 42,000 metric tonne elevator on the Yellowhead Highway, approximately 65 kilometres east of Saskatoon near Colonsay, Sask., is scheduled to open in time for the 2015 harvest.

It is adjacent to the CP main line and will feature a car-loading rate of up to 1,600 metric tonnes per hour with a 134-car loop track.

It comes on the heels of news that CWB has also started construction on a 33,900 metric tonne elevator west of Portage La Prairie in Bloom. That elevator is on the CN main line.

CWB’s overall asset network now includes elevators in Manitoba and Saskatchewan, Mission Terminal in Ontario, and Les Élévateurs des Trois-Rivières in Quebec. In addition, CWB’s two Equinox class laker vessels are scheduled to be operating in the St. Lawrence in 2015.
