Prince Rupert’s marine and dock workers essential to Canada’s reputation for reliability

Port of Prince Rupert workforce has far-reaching impact across northern B.C. and beyond.

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

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.
