Trigon Pacific Terminals Ltd. (Trigon) has awarded a $71-million contract to PPM Civil Constructors, ULC (PPMCC) for the marine construction of its Berth 2 Beyond Carbon (B2BC) project. When operational in 2027, B2BC will be Canada’s first purpose-built infrastructure handling low-carbon energy exports, such as ammonia and hydrogen for fuel use. B2BC is supported by a $75 million federal grant through the National Trade Corridors Fund.
Other key announcements from Trigon’s partners include the newly announced Council for Utilizing Namikata Terminal as a Hub for Introduction of Fuel Ammonia, in Western Japan; as well as the recent announcements by Japan’s Kansai Electric Power and Atco on a full-scale feasibility study to further develop the clean fuels supply chain – known as the North Pacific Green Export Corridor – across Western Canada. The North Pacific Green Corridor extends from the Alberta Heartland Region and British Columbia through Prince Rupert to connect to key Asia Pacific markets.
