11/3/2015

WOODLANDS, Texas -- Unimin Energy Solutions has announced the grand opening of its second unit train capable terminal located in Benwood, West Virginia.

The event, held on Oct. 27, was attended by city and county officials and major service companies operating across the Marcellus and Utica shales.

Unimin, along with partners CSX Railroad and Transload Solutions, now operates an ultra-high efficiency transload and storage facility on ROUTE 2 in the heart of the liquids-rich region of the southern Marcellus in West Virgina and southwestern Pennsylvania.

The Benwood terminal has almost 20,000 tons of silo storage capacity and can load up to 55 trucks per hour to ensure maximum efficiency. The CSX Railroad will shuttle unit trains to continuously replenish frac sand inventory.

"We continue to enhance customer service and efficiency, which is even more critical in these challenging times," Joe Migyanko, general sales manager for Unimin's Northern Region, stated. 

The Benwood terminal is the most recent addition to Unimin's terminal network operating in the Marcellus and Utica plays.
