Westway Group is to expand its Houston1 site in the US to include four new tanks, or about 4.2 million gallons, as well as two new dock lines.
Construction is due to begin in February 2011 with the project to be completed by the second half of the year.
The facility will have a total capacity of 66 million gallons once the development is complete.
Westway Terminal’s president Gene McClain says: ‘This expansion will allow Westway to satisfy the increasing demand for storage.’
At the end of 2010, Westway started its extension of its Houston2 facility, building four new tanks to hold 2.5 million gallons. The facility will be able to hold 37 million gallons once finished.
Westway’s tanks store bulk liquids, as well as animal feeds, feed mill liquids, supplement blocks and dried molasses for beef, dairy, horses and other livestock. It currently has 14 facilities around America.
