Containerized dry bulk handling project

The proposed project 

DP World is proposing to utilize specialized revolving heads on up to three existing gantry cranes in order to facilitate the handling of containerized dry bulk cargoes at their DP World – Fraser Surrey Site (1060 Elevator Road, Surrey, BC). DP World anticipates handling a wide range of containerized dry bulk cargoes, which include, but are not limited to copper concentrate, potash, zinc and lead concentrates. The utilization of the specialized revolving heads would allow cargoes to be handled more efficiently. A mobile dust suppression unit fitted around the rim of the vessel hatch would emit water mist to prevent dust from escaping the hold of the vessel. Should the Project be approved, proposed works would occur shortly after permit issuance.
