In 2012 Pinnacle Renewable Energy developed a $50M Wood Pellet Handling Facility on the west shoreline of Prince Rupert BC. FRPD was contracted to complete the marine structures, land sheet pile cofferdams, and erect the ship loader. This project involved the construction of 4 massive 140′ tall pellet silos, underground conveyor pits, and train access, allowing Pinnacle Pellets to load pellets from their BC interior operations direct to Asia-Pacific shipping routes.

FRPD’s scope of work included construction of the trestle, the berthing dolphins and the ship loader platform. FRPD also erected the impressive ship loading structure which ties the underground unloading pits to an elevation of 100′ above sea level, allowing marine load out.
