|The Prince Rupert Port Authority is reviewing bids for
demolition work of the old storage tanks at the Fairview Terminal site
With a period for application now at an end, officials at the Prince Rupert Port Authority are going over their list and checking it twice to determine the next step for a planned demolition for a long familiar sight on the way in and out of the Fairview Terminal site.
As we outlined earlier this month, the Port recently put out an RFP for the work as well as guidelines for the successful proponent as to what will be expected as part of the project's progress.
Towards what comes following demolition, we contact Monika Côté, Manager of Communications from the Port for a bit of a history lesson and glimpse into the future for the area in question.
The tanks are a legacy of Fairview being used as a breakbulk facility, and while they have been used for different cargoes over the decades (most recently for slack wax), they will be decommissioned.
Once the demolition and remediation work is complete, the land will be used for the Fairview Container Terminal expansion.
The Prince Rupert Port Authority anticipates selection the proponent for the work by April 29th, with the majority of the demolition work to be completed by November of this year.
