The proposed project 

Neptune Bulk Terminals Canada Limited (Neptune) is proposing to decommission their existing phosphate rock (phos-rock) assets located at Berth 3 of their terminal. Assets planned to be decommission include the phos-rock storage building, three rail mounted travelling hoppers and chutes, conveyors R2, R3, R5 and R6, north and south dust collection system and tower, all conveyors and chutes within the rock load out building and four clamshell buckets. 

The total footprint of the project area is estimated to be approximately 7,000 to 7,500 square metres. The works are anticipated to require 3 to 6 weeks to complete and will be conducted within 2 years of permit issuance. Neptune anticipates that most of this work can be completed within standard working hours, however there may be a need to undertake some activities outside of these hours to minimize disruption to terminal operations.
