BNSF Railway Co, Fort Worth TX, will begin delivering unit trains to Musket Corp's newest ethanol storage terminal in in North Fort Worth, according to BNSF information.
With storage capacity of 10 million gallons, the terminal is designed to meet the daily needs of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. The facility maintains its own rail spur and is designed to unload a unit train of 95 cars every 24 hours. Tank cars are drained via an underground piping system and ethanol is pumped directly into the four storage tanks. The ethanol can then be pumped directly into trucks for local distribution.
The new facility will receive shipments exclusively from BNSF Railway's Ethanol Express, a 95-car unit train service specifically created to move ethanol from a single origin or gathering place to a single destination. BNSF said it moves more than 370 million gallons of ethanol per year through the express program.
