450,000 bushels of storage
Terral RiverService has completed construction of two 250,000-bushel capacity grain bins at its Tallulah, Louisiana industrial site.
A tornado hit the facility in April of last year, destroying a 365,000-bushel grain storage tank and over 6,000,000 gallons of liquid fertilizer storage. Terral rebuilt the two liquid tanks and has just completed the grain storage.
The grain storage is Brock bins with Essmueller 20,000-bushel-per-hour grain drags and leg. The bins have an elevated dump pit that can receive a truckload of grain in under three minutes.
Operation of the grain equipment takes place in a state-of-the-art control room adjacent to the dump pit. Along with the new bins, Terral has added an 80-foot Weigh-Tronix truck scale and a new scale house.
Terral hopes the grain storage will offer a competitive edge to its grain barge loading operation at the Madison Parish Port.
