Polar Industries is proud to announce the successful completion of the first project through our trans load facility in Gillam Manitoba.
Our Gillam Trans load is located on 20 acres of land adjacent the Hudson Bay rail line in Gillam Manitoba, 80km from the Keewatinohk/Bipole 3 Manitoba Hydro sites, as well as the Keeyask Hydro Electric dam site.
This first project saw the successful completion of 45 rail cars of pipe brought from the port of Vancouver off loaded in Gillam and brought to the Keewatinohk job site.
The 45 railcars were the equivalent of 158 truckloads, saving the customers PIPE AND PILING SUPPLIES LTD as well as PACER thousands in shipping costs. Polar Industries was able to successfully off load and deliver to site within 23 days from the arrival of the first rail car.
“We have set a precedence in the north that amalgamating with rail for the northern mega projects can be successful and cost effective for these mega projects .”
