Cando Rail adds service to Pembina NGL facility
Cando Rail Services Ltd., as a result of a new customer relationship with Pembina, is producing daily outbound revenue loads of over 200 rail cars per day at the energy company's natural gas liquids (NGL) fractionation facility in Redwater, Alberta.
Cando anticipates outbound revenue loads eventually will increase to the mid-200s of rail cars per day, Cando officials said in a press release.
Operations at the NGL facility run 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In response to the new arrangement with Pembina, Cando hired 54 new employees, including locomotive operators, switch persons, locomotive mechanics and leadership team members.
Cando has a dedicated locomotive mechanic onsite who is responsible for servicing three of Cando's own locomotives, as well as Pembina's two leased locomotives, Cando officials said.
"Cando looks forward to a long-term partnership with Pembina," they said.
