Multiuser Conveyors System

The Saguenay Port Authority (SPA) intents to optimize material handling by installing a multiuser conveyor system between the marine terminal and the industrial zone, located 130 meters above. The proposed conveyor will be 1.8 km long and will connect the Marcel-Dionne wharf to the intermodal station. The main tubular conveyor will be located along the existing road, thus involving work to widen this road.
