Green Plains Partners LP and Delek US Holdings have announced that they are to form a joint venture to construct an ethanol unit train terminal in Maumelle, Arkansas. The project will be able to unload 110-car unit trains in approximately 24 hours and will include storage for 4.2 million gal. of ethanol.
“We are pleased to move forward with the partnership’s first organic growth project with a strategic downstream partner. When completed, this new terminal will allow ethanol to be delivered more efficiently into the Little Rock and surrounding markets. This certainly will give the joint venture a platform upon which to build,” commented Todd Becker, President and CEO at Green Plains Partners.
Mayor Mike Watson of Maumelle added: “The investment by Green Plains Partners and Delek US is a positive economic development opportunity for both the city of Maumelle and surrounding Little Rock area.”
The project is anticipated to be completed by 4Q16.
