CHS to build CN-served propane terminal in Wisconsin

Energy, grains and foods CHS has signed a long-term agreement with Federation Cooperative to build a propane terminal in Hixton, Wis., that will be managed and operated by the cooperative.

To be served by CN, the terminal is expected to be completed in fall. The facility will feature storage tanks that can hold 360,000 gallons of propane, infrastructure that will enable six rail cars to be offloaded every 4.5 hours and two truck loading bays capable of loading six trucks per hour.

CHS plans to access and distribute propane through the terminal to serve existing and new customers in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa.

"This agreement is part of an estimated $24 million investment previously announced by CHS to expand propane service in the region," said Drew Combs, CHS' vice president of propane, in a press release.
