As the world’s third largest port in terms of total cargo moved, the Port of Vancouver is currently trading with over 170 world economies and is contributing over $9.7 billion in gross domestic product. With an increased demand for trade, the port authority needed a sustainable solution to align with government strategies and strengthen Canada’s Asia-Pacific Gateway.
In addition to efforts to increase the capacity and efficiency of existing terminals within the Port of Vancouver, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority is proposing a new three-berth marine terminal at Roberts Bank in Delta, British Columbia. The Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project also includes an expanded tug basin and a widening of the existing four-km-long causeway to accommodate additional road, utilities, and rail infrastructure. The project will promote economic growth, create thousands of jobs, and provide benefits to the community.
As a key member of the owner’s engineer team, we’re providing multi-disciplinary engineering, architecture, surveying and geomatics, and sustainability expertise. The Roberts Bank Terminal 2 is currently undergoing an environmental assessment, and requires environmental permits, regulatory approvals, and a final investment decision before it can proceed.
