Cooper Cove Marine Terminal Expansion Project

The Port of Argentia is proposing to expand its existing Argentia Marine Terminal located in Placentia Bay, on the southeast coast of the island of Newfoundland. As proposed, the Cooper Cove Marine Terminal Expansion Project would include the extension of the existing dock and wharf, as well as construction of a ramp to facilitate the movement of containers and cargo. The expanded facility would support anticipated future increases in shipping demand at the Port, which is expected to double by 2052.
