Parrish & Heimbecker completes upgrades to Goderich Terminal

August 21, 2020 | Eastern Canada

Goderich, Ont.  (August 21, 2020) – Parrish & Heimbecker, Limited (P&H) is pleased to announce the completion of two significant infrastructure projects at its Goderich Terminal.

The first is a new vessel-loading spout that has industry-leading dust suppression technology. The new spout monitors and controls the flow of grain at the discharge end through computerized sensors. From the deck, P&H operators are able to manage a concentrated cylinder of grain, placing it much closer to the bottom of the vessel and reducing unwanted dust emissions.

The second is a mooring dolphin, which will allow vessels of all configurations to be able to receive and discharge their cargos at the terminal, as well as maintain safe manoeuvring within the inner harbour. The entire site layout was reworked to handle larger class vessels and the dolphin provides security and stability for vessels at berth. Extensive collaboration between P&H, Goderich Port Manager Corp (GPMC) and Goderich town staff took place on the design.

“We thank P&H for being so community minded, great corporate citizens of Goderich and for being part of the fabric that makes Goderich a special place; especially with the iconic elevators standing tall at the harbour’s edge,” says Mayor John Grace, Town of Goderich.
