Railcar Loading Facility Project Profiles

SafeRack Construction Services (SCS) Projects

Wyoming Fractionator

Increased Production Project Completed Ahead of Schedule


SCS supplied and installed 4200’ of ladder track on customer-owned rail spur adjacent to UP right of away. An additional 8 spot rail loading platform accompanied the rail install at the fractionating facility in Wyoming. The facility receives feedstock via pipelines from nearby wells and refined products are loaded into railcars using SafeRack, LLC advanced platform, and loading systems. The refinery is now capable of processing up to 50,000 barrels of raw materials per day into #1 Gasoline, Diesel, Butane, and Iso-Butane that supply many of the surrounding states

SafeRack was tapped to supply and install all anhydrous ammonia loading platform and safety equipment as part of their $175 million investment in upgrades and infrastructure to increase production capacity to 800,000 metric tons at an 800 acre, Louisiana anhydrous ammonia manufacturing complex located on the Mississippi River, Jefferson Parish, just outside New Orleans, LA. SafeRack assisted with design, manufacturing and specifications for all loading towers, platforms, pipe bridges, and canopy systems. As well as designing and procuring anhydrous ammonia metering skids and installing the anhydrous ammonia proving tower.

USD Crude Oil loading platform construction

USD Terminals Crude Loadout Facility, Hardisty, Alberta

Download Project Profile 

As one of the primary railcar loading points, Hardisty is one of the major crude oil hubs in North America and a major origination point of pipelines that export to the United States. SCS was asked to supply and construct a SafeRack crude oil loadout terminal spanning nearly half a mile. The USD Hardisty terminal can load up to two 120-railcar unit trains per day and consists of a fixed loading rack with 62 railcar loading positions enclosed, separate control, operator and mechanical buildings, as well as a unit train staging area and loop tracks capable of holding multiple unit trains simultaneously. SCS also supplied and installed boom-supported loading arms with supply and vapor management systems.

When it came time to upgrade and modernize this 1940’s rail loading facility, SCS was the only installer trusted to meet deadlines and exceed expectations. SCS provided a variety of SafeRack products and services for this project including cost analysis of replacing existing versus retrofit. SCS also performed all new equipment design/engineering, as well as demolition plan for removal of existing original loading platform system. SafeRack manufactured all the platform system and safe access equipment in their state of the art facility located in South Carolina. All shipping logistics and on-site receiving/staging was accomplished using SCS on-site project management. Installation of the new rail loading platform, pipe-bridge, process piping, I&E, and ergonomic/environmentally friendly loading arms. With the ability to move feedstock by rail, the customer has experienced an increase in refined product output at many out-of-state facilities previously unable to gather enough raw materials.

HCL Railcar Loading Rack

This 7 Spot loading rack with gangways is for loading Hydrochloric Acid (HCl). This installation is in progress and the photo does not show the completed installation.

HCL Railcar Loading Rack SCS

HCl loading terminals are typically a “tight-fill” (closed-loop) loading operation and is loaded into railcars via chemical hoses or by-pass arms. HCl, if not handled properly can be fatal and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is required. Additionally, because operators are on top of the vehicles during the loading process, fall prevention is essential, not only for safety but increases throughput.

Preventive Maintenance

Eliminate unplanned downtime and lost productivity with preventive maintenance.
