Canola Oil Transload Facility - Fraser Surrey

The proposed project

DP World Fraser Surrey Inc. (the Applicant) is proposing to redevelop a portion of their existing Fraser Surrey Terminal and Berth 10 located at 11060 Elevator Road, Surrey, B.C. to function as a canola oil transload facility. Redevelopment would result in a canola oil throughput capacity of approximately 1,000,000 tonnes per year.  

The Project broadly consists of the following components: 

  • Canola loadout terminal at Berth 10, including construction of a concrete marine access trestle, loading platform, and a catwalk connection between Berths 9 and 10, all supported by approximately 40 piles total (approx. 35 in-water) 
  • Construction of ancillary loading deck and platform infrastructure, such as a marine loading arm and upgraded marine bollards and fenders 
  • Installation of two rail spur tracks (one replacement, one new) for rail receiving and unloading, including construction of railcar bottom offloading stations, unloading pumps, piping and control cables 
  • Construction of the canola storage facility comprised of: three carbon steel 15,000 metric tonne capacity storage tanks (18m high, 37m diameter), elevated tank foundations, with associated ground improvement works, vessel loading pumps, containment area with liners, precast walls, and foundations; and new fire water loop with six hydrants 
  • Installation of below grade canola oil transmission and recycle lines to connect storage tanks to the marine trestle 
  • Development of ancillary facilities including, control building, Motor Control Centre, security facility and vehicle parking  
  • Various associated utility installations, relocations and removals
