Tidewater Transportation and Terminals continues to build and grow its services and storage capacities along the Columbia and Snake Rivers. It recently held a ribbon cutting ceremony to inaugurate celebration a new onsite ethanol unloading and storage facility in Pasco, Washington.

The facility consists of a 24-hour ethanol unit train railcar unloading rack with 24 new unloading stations and associated rail spurs. In addition, two 65,000-barrel steel tanks were built in order to provide reliable operating storage when an ethanol unit train arrives. Each tank has a floating roof which results in a net working capacity of 54,000 barrels.

Tidewater Transportation and Terminals is a portfolio company of Upper Bay Infrastructure Partners, a private North American infrastructure investment firm, managed on behalf of its co-investors.
