Unimin Energy Solutions has made the first delivery of frac sands by unit train to its Jerry Run, West Virginia, terminal. Unimin, with partners CSX Railroad and Process Transload, operate a transload and storage facility in the southern Marcellus region in West Virgina and southwestern Pennsylvania.
The Jerry Run terminal has a 20,000-ton storage capacity and 25 trucks per hour loading rate to facilitate rapid response and improved logistics. The CSX Railroad will shuttle unit trains to continuously replenish frac sand inventory.
The Jerry Run terminal is the most recent addition to Unimin's 10-terminal network operating in the Marcellus and Utica plays.
