Agrico terminal update

September 28, 2017

Agrico’s terminal teams have been hard at work maintaining/improving facilities and equipment as part of our ongoing focus on operational excellence. At Hamilton terminal, in addition to the standard R&M items, a geotextile membrane liner has been installed in the liquid storage dyke, liquid tanks 1 and 2 have been sandblasted/ painted, and dry fertilizer domes 1, 2 and 3 have all been re-shingled over the past few months.

Upcoming projects for 2017 include:

•   Leasing a new loader
•   Replacing the current liquid vessel receiving line
•   Installing an inline liquid blending system
•   Building a maintenance shop

At our St. Thomas terminal, a new maintenance shop was built earlier this year and the old shop was renovated into a multi-use meeting/kitchen area.  Over the next few months, there are plans to purchase a trackmobile with R/C and replace the existing siding on the fertilizer plant.

The Oak Bluff terminal has also implemented a number of improvements, including:

•  A significant expansion of the main office
•  Renovation of the operations office
•  Leasing a new loader
•  Purchasing a trackmobile with R/C

Going forward, Agrico will continue to embrace initiatives that benefit health, safety and the environment, improve efficiency, and bring value to our customers.
