Inland Fuel Terminals Inc., a subsidiary of Santa Energy Corp., opened a 540,000-gallon propane rail facility in Plymouth, Conn.

Hillel Weisel, vice president of Inland Fuel Terminals, says the propane rail facility is the largest of its kind in Connecticut. He adds the new facility offers major highway access into New York, Connecticut and western Massachusetts.

The terminal features eight tower positions to unload propane railcars and four transport loading bays for outgoing product. According to Inland Fuel Terminals, the transports load at about 600 gallons per minute.

The company contracted a service agreement with its rail provider to guarantee switches to keep the terminal adequately supplied. The company also entered into a storage agreement with the railroad to maintain an inventory of cars within their local system.

Additionally, Inland Fuel Terminals plans to offer flexible hours of operation based on customer and seasonal demand, along with customized supply and pricing programs for each customer’s needs.
