Prince Rupert, British Columbia-based Trigon Pacific Terminals Ltd. has awarded Pacific Pile & Marine Civil Constructors a $71 million contract to build its Berth 2 Beyond Carbon (B2BC) project, it was announced May 3.

Funded with a $75 million federal grant, B2BC is poised to be the first purpose-built infrastructure in Canada to handle low-carbon energy commodities, such as ammonia and hydrogen for fuel use, according to the announcement. The facility’s expected to be in service in 2027.

“The world is transitioning and so are we,” Trigon CEO Rob Booker said. “Canada is exceptionally well-positioned to supply the Asia-Pacific with emerging fuels such as ammonia, and we are putting the necessary pieces in place to transform our terminal and Prince Rupert into a low-carbon energy export hub.”

Pacific Pile has offices in Seattle and Anchorage. Its president, Neil Williams, said the company is honored to carry out the project.

“Delivering projects of this magnitude, while maintaining a focus on safety, the community and the environment – these are absolute priorities of ours,” he said. “This project will also provide economic benefits to this region, including excellent employment opportunities for the foreseeable future.”
