N.D. (NewsDakota.com) Cenex Harvest State’s Inc announced it is reviewing plans to break ground on a 196-acre campus in Gwinner, North Dakota that will include a grain shuttle loading facility with 2.2-million bushel storage and a 27,000-ton dry fertilizer hub plant.
The fertilizer plant is expected to open in the spring 2016 and the grain facility in the fall of 2016.
The fertilizer facility, with 1,200 ton-per-hour receiving system, will be part of CHS Dakota Plains, based in Valley City.
Grain handling services would be jointly managed by CHS Dakota Plains and CHS Dakota Ag, based in Kindred.
The plan calls for a 120-car loop track with an internal 3,800-foot spur track to allow the facility to load 25-car sets from the Red River Valley and western transfer cars directly into BNSF shuttle trains.
Region director of CHS Country Operations Gary Goodroad said this investment on behalf of our owners will bring much needed speed and space to area farmers.
