Dec 7 (Reuters) - Teck Resources Ltd said on Friday it expects no material impact on its fourth-quarter production or sales after a ship crashed at a terminal near Vancouver that is an important shipping point for coal from Teck's British Columbia mines.

A large vessel struck and damaged a trestle leading to a berth that Teck uses at terminals owned by Westshore Terminals Investment Corp.

Canada's largest diversified miner said it plans to ship coal from a second berth at the facility and will shift some capacity to other terminals. It still expects to meet or exceed its fourth-quarter coal sales guidance of 6.2 million tonnes.
