Wood Pellet Producer, British Columbia, Canada
Project Type: Wood Pellet Export Facility
Location: British Columbia, Canada
Capacities: 1,000 - 2,000 TPH
A wood pellet producer in western Canada constructed a new export facility. Rapat was hired to supply totally enclosed galvanized belt conveyors, bucket elevators, transfer chutes and support galleries. Beyond normal technological hurdles, the material handling capacities to quickly unload rail cars and load ships were very high. The site also was adjacent to residential areas, so quiet, dust-tight designs were essential. Rapat successfully incorporated all the client requirements, while navigating the harsh North Pacific Ocean environmental conditions, which made structural design work critical.
