The Prince Rupert Port Authority (PRPA) announced earlier this week the completion of a container terminal master plan that outlines the potential of future container terminal capacity and sequencing of development at the Port of Prince Rupert. The planning work identifies the long-term potential to develop 6 – 7 million TEUs of capacity through the development of multiple terminals at the Port of Prince Rupert.  This includes further expansion of Fairview Terminal and the development of a second container terminal with a capacity of 2.5 million TEUs at the Port's South Kaien Island site. Both the current Fairview Terminal and South Kaien sites are in close proximity to expanding export logistics operations on Ridley Island, and will fully integrate with these operations following PRPA’s construction of the Fairview-Ridley Connector Corridor scheduled for the end of 2020.
