ORHS Awards 2 Grants for Rail Infrastructure

March 11, 2022

Two grants have been awarded by the Ohio Rail Development Commission to pay in part for expansion of rail infrastructure.

Tessenderlo Kerley received a $75,000 grant while Cincinnati Bulk Terminals relieved a $50,000 grant.

A ORDC news release said TKI plans to invest $40 million in rail infrastructure at a new facility in Defiance over the next three years.

The plant, which is expected to be fully operational in the first quarter of 2024, produces chemical products for agricultural and industrial use.

In Defiance, TKI will produce liquid sulfur-based crop nutrition brands Thio-Sul, KTS and K-row 23, as well as sulfite chemicals for industrial markets.

CBT plans to expand its rail infrastructure to improve shipping and receiving flexibility with its serving railroad, Central Railroad of Indiana.

Work will include adding two switches, ballast and track to enable CBT and CIND to handle at least 17 additional rail cars on site.

When completed, the expansion will help reduce the number of times CIND travels to and from the CSX Queensgate Yard in Cincinnati.

The news release described CBT as an all-purpose inland marine terminal that transports bulk and breakbulk products, moving more than 3,000 carloads per year across western Ohio.
