PORT OF PRINCE RUPERT SEES DECLINE IN CARGO VOLUMES IN 2021 BUT POISED FOR GROWTH

The Prince Rupert Port Authority (PRPA) released its annual cargo volumes today – over 25 million tonnes moved through the Prince Rupert Gateway in Northern BC in 2021. Despite this uncharacteristic 23 percent decrease in year-over-year total volume, the Port of Prince Rupert played a vital role in ensuring the movement of essential goods on North America’s West Coast and provided important economic stability for the region through a tumultuous year.

Please be advised that due to the high winds Prince Rupert is currently experiencing, the roof at the Northern Seafoods building (located on Cow Bay Road, between the Metlakatla Ferry Dock and Northland Cruise Terminal) has become unstable. We ask that members of the public avoid the area until the wind subsides. ...

UPDATE at 1730

Following the grounding incident of the MSC Altair earlier today, the Prince Rupert Port Authority (PRPA) can confirm that the vessel is now in the outer Harbour, with a tug escort and a BC Coast Pilot aboard.

When the wind subsides, the vessel will move to anchorage to undergo assessment.

PRPA would like to thank all those involved in the swift and safe response to this incident.

*******************

At approximately 2PM today, strong winds caused the container vessel MSC Altair to break its lines from where it was berthed at Fairview Container Terminal and grounded on the eastern side of nearby Digby Island. Multiple tugs have refloated the vessel and it’s now under its own power and will be moving safely to anchorage. No injuries have been reported.

Initial reports indicate no significant damage to the vessel and no indications of marine pollution are apparent. More information will be provided as it becomes available. Visit ruperport.com for updates.

THE PRINCE RUPERT ADVANTAGE

Shortest Pacific Route

The Port of Prince Rupert is North America’s closest port to Asia by up to three days sailing—it’s 36 hours closer to Shanghai than Vancouver and over 68 hours closer than Los Angeles.

Safe Access to Shipping Lanes

Major marine risks are greatly mitigated by the ideal natural features of our harbour. The Port of Prince Rupert has the deepest harbour in North America, is ice-free year round, and is able to accommodate the largest vessels in the shipping trade.

Deepest Harbour in North America

Our deep, wide, and protected approaches enjoy a short, direct access to and from Pacific shipping lanes and oers ample room for anchorages. That’s why our pilot time is 2-6 hours less than other major Northwest ports.
