New options, greater capacity, and significant business potential are driving an advancing project at Eastern Canada’s Port Saint John, a cargo and cruise operation on New Brunswick’s Bay of Fundy

The USD154.3million West Side Modernisation project is intended to boost the container capacity of Saint John in Canada, while maintaining the port’s bulk cargo traffic and enabling new Panamax cargo vessels, as well as more cruise calls. A joint venture of Hatch and Dillon Consulting is providing the overall project design and construction management for the port.

Alternative Concrete Technologies is the contractor for ongoing site preparations, and a contractor for the major wharf construction is expected to be awarded in spring 2019, according to the port. The initiative has attracted funding from the Canadian government and New Brunswick province, with each, in addition to the port, providing one-third or USD51.4million, of the project total.
