DP World invests in Canada
The Port of Saint John's in Newfoundland, Canada will benefit from a USD 250 million investment. Operator DP World’s plans include a consolidation of the Rodney and Navy Island terminals with a longer pier, a terminal upgrade and a deeper shipping channel.
The modernisation programme will be carried out over a period of five years. The aim is to increase capacity and extend the technological capabilities of the terminals to accommodate vessels with a capacity of 10,000 teu.
Hinterland connections will be strengthened by further a 4,000 m of rail network. The upgrade will almost double the port's annual capacity to 300,000 teu. (cd)
