SafeRack Tank Truck Load-out Installation

This SafeRack access platform and gangway at a Marathon Refinery gives workers access to the tank truck’s top hatches at a bottom loadout terminal.

The tank truck load-out terminal is designed so that drivers can safely load their trucks without assistance from other personnel. Multiple trucks can be filled simultaneously. Truck operators access the top hatches on the tanks for venting and inspection. SafeRack’s access platform is equipped with our patented safety gangway and safety cages, providing workers with safe and easy access to the top of their tank trucks.

Marathon’s Dickinson North Dakota refinery has a crude oil capacity of 19,000 barrels per calendar day (bpcd). Primarily processes domestic crude oil from North Dakota and manufactures ultra-low sulfur diesel and gasoline blendstocks, which are distributed by truck and rail.

This refinery is planned to be converted into a 12,000 bpcd, 100 percent renewable diesel facility, which will process refined soy oil and other organically derived feedstocks.
