Trigon accelerates the North Pacific Green Energy Export Corridor’s transition

May 3, 2023

Trigon Pacific Terminals Ltd. (Trigon) has announced the construction of its Berth 2 Beyond Carbon (B2BC) project, which will be Canada’s first purpose-built infrastructure for handling low-carbon energy exports.

A $71-million contract was awarded to PPM Civil Constructors, ULC, and the new infrastructure will facilitate doubling the terminal's capacity while diversifying Trigon’s activities. The project aims to transform the Prince Rupert Trigon terminal into a hub for exporting low-carbon energy, such as hydrogen and ammonia.

Trigon’s project aligns with Japan’s Kansai Electric Power and Atco’s full-scale feasibility study to further develop the clean fuels supply chain across Western Canada. Known as the North Pacific Green Export Corridor, the chain extends from the Alberta Industrial Heartland and British Columbia through Prince Rupert to connect to key Asia Pacific markets.

B2BC was made possible with a $75 million grant from Canada’s National Trade Corridors Fund.
