VAFFC Fuel Truck Offloading Facilities Expansion

The Vancouver Airport Fuel Facility Corporation (VAFFC) is proposing upgrades to the existing aviation fuel storage facilities located at the Vancouver International Airport. The project consists of the completion of a truck unloading island at Tank Farm 1 (6000 Ferguson Road, Richmond BC) and a new truck unloading island at Tank Farm 2 (5980 Ferguson Road, Richmond BC). This would bring the total truck unloading islands to 6 islands (3 at Tank Farm 1 and 3 at Tank Farm 2).  The purpose of this project is to increase the capacity to receive fuel shipments by tanker truck and to improve the operational efficiencies for tanker truck deliveries. Activities for this project will consist of installation of piping, mechanical equipment, electrical equipment, a concrete containment pad and asphalt installation for the operation of receiving fuel from truck deliveries. The project will be located at 6000 Ferguson Road, Richmond BC and 5980 Ferguson Road, Richmond BC.


The Vancouver Airport Authority must determine whether the proposed project to upgrade the existing tank farms is likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects. To help inform this determination, Vancouver Airport Authority invited comments from the public respecting the determination.
