Port cargo and bulk storage building supports Integrated Logistics
Rubb USA stepped up to help a Canadian stevedoring company find a port storage building solution for the handling of bulk, break bulk, containerized and special project cargoes.
Rubb won an order to provide a 90’ x 154’ FXI structure for Integrated Logistics (NL) Ltd at Argentia Port Facility, Newfoundland.
Located in Placentia Bay, the busiest commercial bay in the province, Argentia is at the centre of the Newfoundland industrial scene. The terminal is 125 km from St John’s, the main residential and industrial hub.
Argentia Port was originally developed by the US Army as a naval base. The port area has plenty of lay down and storage space. Integrated Logistics combines efficient services with more than 180 hectares of land to provide the ideal service for businesses.
The Rubb port cargo storage fabric building is used for warehousing and protecting equipment maintenance procedures. It is the first Rubb cargo building to be constructed in Newfoundland.
The strong North Atlantic winds in Argentia reach speeds of 15 to 30mph, 24 hours a day, with higher wind speeds during ocean storms. Rubb buildings are designed and constructed to withstand such harsh environmental conditions and are rugged and reliable in all climates.
While other conventional and fabric tension membrane buildings have failed in this area, the Rubb structure stands strong, proving to be robust and durable in challenging conditions.
