MONTREAL — The Montreal Port Authority has announced that three teams have been qualified to submit proposals for the design and construction of the Contrecoeur container terminal in Montreal.
The qualified teams are:
- Ancre Contrecoeur, led by Dragados Canada, with AECOM Consultants on the team;

The request for qualifications was posted Aug. 4, 2020 and five bid responses were received and evaluated, stated a Jan. 20 release.
The Contrecoeur land reserve was acquired 30 years ago by the Montreal Port Authority. By 2024, with the support of the Canada Infrastructure Bank and the government of Quebec, the Port of Montreal and its private partners intend to develop a new container terminal to handle 1.15-million 20-foot equivalent units when completed.
Review of the project by the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada continues and the overall procurement process remains subject to obtaining the required approvals and permits.
