CHS to open Wisconsin propane rail terminal

November 3, 2014 By    

CHS Inc. is nearing completion of a new propane rail terminal in Hixton, Wis. The terminal will be completed in time to meet demand for the upcoming heating season, CHS says.

According to a press release, CHS owns the terminal and Federation Cooperative of Black River Falls, Wis., operates it. The terminal will initially have 360,000 gallons of storage, the ability to unload six railcars every 4 1/2 hours, and two truck-loading bays capable of loading six trucks per hour.

“CHS invested in this terminal as part of a broader $24 million investment to develop a robust supply network for propane marketers in the northern tier region affected by the Cochin Pipeline reversal,” says Drew Combs, CHS vice president of propane. “Our goal is to help marketers serve homeowners, farms and businesses with a safe, reliable supply of propane, and to position our customers for future growth while adding value for our member owners.”
