Richardson Pioneer to build new grain elevator in southwest Sask


Winnipeg-based Richardson Pioneer has outlined plans to build a high throughput grain elevator at Carmichael, about 65 kilometers west of Swift Current.

Construction began earlier this month and is expected to be completed in the fall of 2022.

The new elevator will include 46 thousand metric tons of storage capacity with a loop track rail design capable of loading 175 huge cube rail cars.

The facility will feature high speed receiving and load out, with a high capacity grain cleaning system.

Immediately following completion of the new elevator, Richardson will build crop input assets, including a high speed fertilizer blender with storage and a 10 thousand foot warehouse.

These will be fully operational by fall 2023.
