Mulgrave Marine Terminal

The Mulgrave Marine Terminal is owned and operated by Strait Superport and is located in the Town of Mulgrave, on the western shore of the Strait of Canso.

 The 2.8-hectare terminal is positioned to service the offshore oil and gas industry through its strategic location, excellent infrastructure, skilled workforce, and supply base services. The terminal also services a range of bulk and breakbulk cargo activities that require warehousing and lay-down area  at dockside. It also  serves the needs of marine construction projects on Canada’s east coast.
