Viterra announced they will be building a new Ste. Agathe grain elevator. The elevator will be near their existing canola crush plant in Ste. Agathe, Manitoba and will have a capacity of about 30,000 tonnes and be able to load up to 124 rail cars. The elevator will be on the CN Letellier subdivision so it can be served by CN or BNSF.
This facility will join their 13 existing elevators and specialty facilities in Manitoba.
Ste. Agathe used to have a Manitoba Pool/Agricore grain elevator, a large structure with two annexes. It was demolished in June 2010.
The elevator is scheduled to open in 2016.
A visit to the elevator on August 13, 2016 showed that it is nearly complete. The loop track attached to the CN line is in place and ballasted.
