Terminal Specifications

Fibreco receives

Wood pellets from various B.C. suppliers and grain products from a dedicated prairie supplier via rail for shipment to our international and domestic customers via deep-sea vessel.

Fibreco’s terminal

Is located on 9.3 hectares of land within the north shore of Burrard Inlet. We also lease a 5.8 hectare water lot from the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority to accommodate the shipping berth. The terminal is one of the largest and most modern wood pellet handling facilities in the world.

We have six

4,500 metric tonne storage silos for wood pellets, which have a combined capacity 27,000 tonnes. Our pellet shed stores 17,000 tonnes bringing total wood pellet storage to 44,000 tonnes, or sufficient cargo to fully load one Handymax vessel.

Our ship berth

Can accommodate vessels up to 229 metres long with 12.25 metres draught. The conveyor and shiploader facilitate efficient loading. We are also able to accommodate Panamax vessels when requested.
