Distribution Terminal & Logistics
Tackling complex distribution terminal & logistics projects are some of PENTA’s specialties. We designed and built this distribution terminal in the Northwestern region of the U.S. This project was completed on an EPC (Engineering/Procurement/Construction) basis. The system consists of two storage silos with rail unloading and truck loading capacity.
CHALLENGES & SOLUTIONS:
- Property required special designs due to its odd shape – 200 ft. wide x 2500 ft. long.
- Only 125 ft. wide was usable space. (The railroad needed 25 ft. of clearance, 25 more ft. for a new rail line, and our designs had to be 25 ft. from power lines.)
- Weather conditions were so cold we had to rent heaters to heat the ground to keep construction running on schedule.
- Roads had to be designed to accommodate over-sized trucks with pup trailers. The scale had to accommodate the larger trucks as well.
PENTA completed the front end engineering design and final engineering design for all systems.
PENTA Engineering Company’s core competencies lie in engineering disciplines such as electrical, mechanical, civil/structural, environmental, and process specifically for the mining, industrial minerals, and cement industries.
PENTA Industrial Corporation is the arm of PENTA specializing in the procurement of equipment, and construction or construction management for industrial plant projects. PENTA’s four divisions allow us to act as a turnkey provider of EPC and EPCM solutions for new greenfield facilities as well as for upgrades and modifications to existing plants.
This particular facility required assistance with commissioning and startup services, procurement of all equipment, construction services and comprehensive engineering services for front end engineering design, final engineering design, and site engineering.
