Grain handling firm Viterra revealed plans Monday for the construction of a new grain elevator in Biggar, SK. Upon completion, the facility will have a storage capacity of 34,000 mt and include a loop track for loading railcars.
“For the last several years, we have been making targeted investments across our asset network to ensure we’re aligned with our operating environment and able to provide the high level of service our customers expect from a leader like Viterra,” Kyle Jeworski, the firm’s president and chief executive officer, said in a release. “We’re pleased to be revitalizing our presence in the Biggar area, and making a long term commitment to our customers through this significant investment.”
Work on the new site is slated to begin immediately. Construction is expected to be completed in early 2022.
