Replacement of wheels and rails of marine towers


Our client’s grain terminal has three marine towers that are responsible for unloading grain from lakers vessels and bringing the grain into the facility. Each marine tower is supported by 40 wheels. The towers can move on rails to align with the different holds of the ship.

This project includes three phases over 3-4 years to replace the wheels and rails of the marine towers and electrical modernization.

As Teknema has expertise in construction management and a vast knowledge of health and safety procedures outlined by the CNESST, Teknema was able to make sure that there were no accidents or personal injuries throughout the entirety of the project.
