Paterson Grain in Bowden, Alberta, welcomed the public to its grand opening Wednesday, reports the Red Deer Advocate.

Construction of the $25-million facility started in May 2017, and it’s Paterson Grain’s fourth inland export terminal in Alberta.

The high efficiency facility includes a 150-car loop track capable of loading a full unit train in eight hours. It can also store about 2.2 million bushels of grain, ship 75,000 bushels per hour, clean 8,800 bushels/hour, and receive 32 Super B trucks/hour.

The terminal will be able to receive different commodities from each driveway without interrupting shipping operations.

Grain from the Bowden facility will be exported through Paterson’s Alliance Grain Terminal in the Port of Vancouver, B.C. to destinations worldwide.
