Port of Trois-Rivieres inaugurates new breakbulk terminal

Several federal and provincial ministers and officials proceeded with the inauguration of the Breakbulk Terminal at the Port of Trois-Rivieres last week. Construction of Dock 9 was completed last December, thereby finalizing the new Breakbulk Terminal.

The new dock is part of the development project which included outdoor storage areas 9, 10 and 11, the construction of warehouse 9 and the upgrading of road and rail access completed during Phase I of the On Course for 2020 modernization plan.

The Breakbulk Terminal at the Port of Trois-Rivieres required investments totalling $ 27.3 million between 2009 and 2017. The Government of Canada's contribution totalled $ 7.8 million and $ 6 million for the Government of Quebec, while the Trois-Rivieres Port Authority (TRPA) invested $ 10 million along with investments of $ 3.5 million from Port users.

The Breakbulk Terminal includes Piers 9, 10, and 11, with 36,000 square metres of outdoor storage and three warehouses totalling 18,000 square metres. Efficient access is provided both by rail and by road. The terminal will improve competitiveness for shipping on the St. Lawrence and for manufacturing companies in the region.
