VANCOUVER, BC – The Initial Project Description (IPD) for the GCT Deltaport Berth 4 Expansion (DP4) project has been approved by the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada (IAAC) and the BC Environmental Assessment Office (BCEAO), announced Global Container Terminals (GCT) which operates two container facilities in the Port of Vancouver.
This critical milestone marks the entry of the project into the Regulatory Process and opens official public access and engagement with Phase 1 Planning. “GCT is excited to enter this phase of the project and welcomes comments, questions, and engagement from all stakeholders and interested parties,” the terminal operator said.
The GCT Deltaport Berth 4 Expansion project (per artist rendering) will provide incremental, market-driven capacity in the Port of Vancouver through a phased expansion of the current terminal footprint, adding up to 2M TEUs of new capacity, as it is needed.
GCT has a proud history and an exceptional record of delivering projects that are economically, environmentally, and socially sustainable. Approval of its IPD proves GCT’s DP4 project is a serious contender to provide needed capacity in the Port of Vancouver within the next decade.
(The budget for the Deltaport 4 project’s phased-in approach has been estimated at between $1 billion and $1.6 billion compared to well over $2 billion for the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority’s RBT2 project still awaiting final regulatory approval.)
