Charah Solutions opens rail-served fly ash terminal in Massachusetts
Charah Solutions Inc. recently opened a new rail-served distribution terminal for fly ash in Hopedale, Massachusetts.
The terminal will serve customers in New England, where demand for quality fly ash is growing, Charah Solutions officials said in a press release. The fly ash sales and marketing company provides environmental and maintenance services to the power generation industry.
Featuring storage silos, the terminal is served by the Grafton and Upton Railroad Co. Near interstates 90 and 495, the facility offers direct routes to points in Rhode Island and New Hampshire, allowing for the efficient distribution of products throughout the region, Charah Solutions officials said.
"This relocation to a larger terminal in central Massachusetts will allow us to more than double our regional throughput and increase our inventory, while ensuring a steady and reliable supply of quality fly ash for the ready-mix concrete producers throughout the region," said Vice President of Byproduct Sales Scott Ziegler.
Charah Solutions maintains nearly 40 sourcing locations nationwide, across New England, the South, Midwest, Rocky Mountains and California. The terminals provide Class C and Class F fly ash to ready-mix concrete producers and other customers.
