CN has completed a new propane terminal in Hixton Wisconsin..from CNnewswire..

CHS set to open CN-served propane terminal in Wisconsin



PR Newswire

CHS Propane Terminal Ribbon Cutting in Hixton, Wis.



ST. PAUL, Minn. -- CHS, a leading energy, grains and foods company and the nation's leading farmer-owned cooperative, is nearing completion of a new propane rail terminal in Hixton, Wis., in time to meet demand for the upcoming heating season. An open house event was held on October 30 to mark the occasion.




CHS Propane Terminal Ribbon Cutting in Hixton, Wis.




"On behalf of Governor Walker, I want to thank CHS for investing in Wisconsin. The new terminal that CHS and Federation Cooperative have built in west central Wisconsin will be a major asset in bringing more propane into the state this winter," said Chris Schoenherr, Deputy Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Administration.




The new terminal is owned by CHS and operated by Federation Cooperative of Black River Falls, Wis. Served by the CN railroad, the terminal will initially have 360,000 gallons of storage, the ability to unload six railcars every 4.5 hours, and two truck loading bays capable of loading six trucks per hour. The secure terminal, which uses modern automation and safety technologies, will be completed in mid-November.




"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," according to 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," says Combs.




CHS has an 80-year history as a dependable supplier of propane and related equipment.

CHS Inc. is a leading global agribusiness owned by farmers, ranchers and cooperatives across the United States. Diversified in energy, grains and foods, CHS is committed to helping its customers, farmer-owners and other stakeholders grow their businesses through its domestic and global operations.

Silgan has a plant in Ligonier and is an NS Customer, Silgan I believe is primarily a blow molder and the volume they produce I would believe they will be a rail customer..
