The Proposed Project

The Saguenay Port Authority is proposing the construction and operation of a new multi-user marine terminal to service the north shore of the Saguenay River at the municipality of Sainte-Rose-du-Nord, located approximately 45 kilometres from the city of Saguenay. The project involves the building of a wharf, a ship loader, silos, concentrate handling facilities and related buildings. An access road to the wharf 1 to 1.5 kilometre in length will have to be built. The berthing capacity of the wharf would be designed to accommodate bulk cargo vessels with a minimum of 50,000 deadweight tonnage.
