Operations at Fairview Terminal in Prince Rupert will be picking up this summer with the expected arrival of another crane at the terminal site.

“I can confirm that there is a fourth crane on order, and we are hopeful it will arrive in mid-July,” said Maher Terminals Canada vice-president and general manager Mark Schepp.

The crane will be the first major expansion at Fairview since it opened in September 2007, and comes as the terminal exceeded its initial design capacity of 500,000 TEUs in 2012. The crane will be placed alongside the three existing cranes, which arrived with much fanfare on Aug. 20,2007.
