Viterra is adding another state-of-the-art grain elevator to its lineup in Saskatchewan.

The new elevator at Biggar will have a storage capacity of 34,000 metric tonnes,  a loop track and will be built on the CP rail line.

The current facility is located along CN's rail line.

Kyle Jeworski, President and CEO of Viterra North America says for the last several years they have been making targeted investments across their asset network.

"We're pleased to be revitalizing our presence in the Biggar area, and making a long term commitment to our customers through this significant investment."

Construction on the new facility will begin immediately and is slated for completion in early 2022.
