Fibreco scaling back wood products handling at terminal
May 9, 2017 - Fibreco Export Inc., a B.C.-owned port terminal in North Vancouver, is in the process of phasing out its handling of wood chips and reducing its handling of wood pellets in favour of agricultural products.
According to North Shore News, the volume of both wood chips and wood pellets handled by the 40-year-old facility has fallen in the past decade.
Project manager Glenn Dempster told NSN that in 2002 Fibreco’s handling of wood chips peaked at 2-million metric tonnes, and last year that figure was about 221,000 metric tonnes. A reduction in volume of wood pellets handled is due to the opening of a terminal in Prince Rupert, Dempster said.
