Fibreco’s terminal is located on the north shore of Burrard Inlet in Port Metro Vancouver. The land site is 9.3 hectares and we lease a 5.8 hectare water lot from the Vancouver Port Authority to accommodate the shipping berth. The terminal is one of the largest and most modern wood chip and wood pellet handling facilities in the world, with an annual capacity of approximately five million tonnes.
For wood chips our terminal is capable of handling four different species with a total storage capacity of 75,000 bone dry metric tonnes (BDMTs) at a time.
For wood pellets there are six storage silos, each with a capacity of 4,500 metric tonnes, totaling 27,000 tonnes. Our pellet shed stores 18,000 tonnes bringing total wood pellet storage to 45,000 tonnes, or one handymax vessel.
We have additional land available that can be configured to a wide variety of storage options including additional silos, shed(s), or open storage depending on customers’ requirements.
Our ship berth can accommodate vessels up to 210 metres long with 12.5 metres draught and is serviced with a conveyor and shiploader to facilitate efficient loading. Engineering is complete for increasing the berth length to accommodate Panamax vessels when customers require it.
