P+H to Double Current Site Capacity

Winnipeg grain company will add a new elevator, crop input center

Winnipeg grain company Parrish and Heimbecker has plans to double its grain handle out of northwestern Manitoba, Canada, with a new elevator and crop input center, says the Manitoba Co-operator.

The company announced Aug. 1 it will put up a new facility in the RM of Gilbert Plains, with 25,000 to 30,000 tonnes of storage capacity and a loop track for a 150-rail car spot connecting to Canadian National Railway’s (CN) line.

By comparison, the company’s existing site at Dutton, on the CN line about 40 km west of Dauphin on Highway 5, between Gilbert Plains and Grandview, sports 16,600 tonnes of storage capacity and a 56-car spot.

The new facility, which P+H said it will name Grand Plains, is expected to offer farmers a receiving capacity of 550 tonnes per hour, with load-out capacity of 1,500 tonnes per hour.
