Huge steel silos are under construction in the Anse-au-Foulon industrial sector of the Port of Quebec.

A few years ago, the sudden appearance on Quebec City’s riverfront of two huge white silos, like twin inflated balloons, caused a flap.

Those domes, 46 metres in height, were erected in the Anse-au-Foulon industrial zone of the port, to store wood pellets from northern Ontario destined for shipment to hearths and heating plants in England.
