20 Feb Underhill Awarded Port Metro Vancouver Deltaport CCIP Survey Project
Posted at 13:53h in News, Our History
Deltaport, at Roberts Bank in Delta, BC, is the largest container terminal in Canada, with a current capacity of 1.8 million TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent unit containers). Current road and rail constraints limit the capacity of Deltaport to meet forecast demand for additional container movements.
As part of the Container Capacity Improvement Program(CCIP), Port Metro Vancouver has worked with the Province of BC and Deltaport operator TSI Terminal Systems Inc. to develop a plan to upgrade existing infrastructure that would increase Deltaport’s container capacity by 600,000 TEUs, for a total of 2.4 million TEUs.
Underhill was tasked with surveying 17Km of road and rail corridor to support the engineering activities of WorleyParsons.
