Barge Loading/Truck Loading Terminal
The Boligee Barge Loading Project involved the complete design of a
grass-roots pipeline receipt/barge loading/truck loading terminal for
refined products. Included were a pipeline receipt manifold, barge
loading dock on the Tenn-Tom Waterway, (5) above ground storage tanks,
truck loading rack, and tug servicing dock. Other features of the
terminal included a fire pump drawing from the river to supply fire
water; a dry chemical fire system for the truck loading rack; ethanol
blending at the truck rack; a boat launch ramp for deploying a spill
boat; a marine vapor combustion unit with propane supply tank; security
systems including cameras, TWIC card readers, and automatic gates; and
complete terminal automation system.
