The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority has initiated Project procurement in parallel with the environmental assessment process to ensure the capacity provided by the Project can be available when it is required in the early to mid-2020s.

Subject to required environmental permits and approvals, as well as a final investment decision by the selected project partners, construction of the Project could begin as soon as 2018 and will take about five-and-a-half years to complete.

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority is undertaking separate procurements for the terminal operator and the infrastructure developer.

Terminal Operator

  • Procured through a competitive process and will be in place in advance of the procurement for the infrastructure developer.
  • For a period of up to 40 years, the terminal operator will be responsible for terminal facilities, equipment and ongoing container handling operations.

Infrastructure Developer

  • Procured following the selection of a terminal operator.
  • The infrastructure developer will be responsible for designing, building, financing and maintaining the terminal land base and related infrastructure, including the berth structure.
