G3 announces new elevator near Carmangay, Alberta

WINNIPEG, October 26, 2018 – G3 Canada Limited will build a new primary elevator near Carmangay in southern Alberta, the company announced today.

The state-of-the-art facility will feature the same high efficiency technology as G3’s other new elevators on the Prairies, which can empty a Super-B truck in less than 5 minutes and load 134-car trains in a matter of hours on the loop track.

“G3 Carmangay is designed to save farmers’ time and keep their grain moving to market,” says G3 CEO Don Chapman. “We’re looking forward to being part of the community in and around Vulcan County, and showing farmers how our industry-leading speed and efficiency can benefit their business.”

G3 Carmangay is located southwest of Carmangay on the east side of Highway #23. It will be on CP Rail line and have a capacity of 42,000 tonnes.

Construction will begin shortly and is expected to be complete in 2020, when G3’s new grain export terminal in Vancouver also becomes operational.

G3 Carmangay is just the latest in the expansion of G3’s grain origination network in Western Canada. Construction is already underway on previously-announced elevators in Wetaskiwin, Alberta and Maidstone, Saskatchewan. G3 recently celebrated the grand openings of new elevators near Melville and Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
