Rail Offload Facility Design & Main Terminal Expansion

SPEC provided support for a major terminal expansion project to build a new offsite ethanol and butane rail offload facility at a greenfield location and the associated infrastructure improvements at the main terminal.  The scope of work included design of the rail site stormwater retention pond system (including facilitating flora mitigation and fauna relocation), tank containments, and all major equipment foundations.  SPEC performed the mechanical, civil, and electrical design of the new rail off load facility and for the piping system design and modification at the main terminal.  This included tank demolition/construction to accommodate increased product throughput and butane blending capability.  SPEC was responsible for hydraulic analyses, component specification and bid analysis for all major equipment (piping, valves, tanks, pumps, flow meters, instrumentation, and electrical components) and for generating the design drawing packages (IFR, IFB, IFC) and record P&ID’s.
