Fairview Container Terminal—North Expansion Phase II
Projects / Industrial & Infrastructure
The Fairview Container Terminal is a dedicated intermodal facility that provides a high-velocity gateway for transpacific container trade. The Fairview Phase II North Expansion project consisted of a berth expansion, wharf upgrade, mooring dolphin, and container stacking and storage yards. All electrical and technology systems within the facility required upgrades and additions to accommodate such a vast expansion.
Our team delivered electrical and structured cabling solutions for the project, which included substation upgrades, relocating and installing new Canada Border Services Agency radiation portals, new technology feeder systems for the gantry cranes, and a major fibre optic system upgrade for communications and specialized lighting controls. We also relocated and installed a 150 foot high, high-mast lighting system for the terminal and new specialized Cavotec shore-power systems.
The project was a major undertaking for our team and required careful work to ensure safe and reliable electrical systems. We performed the work in stages to allow full operation of the facility without interruptions.
