Burnside Marine Terminal

Impala Warehousing (US) LLC/Trafigura AG
Darrow, Louisiana

Beard Construction Group, LLC was awarded multiple contracts associated with Impala’s A-G Coal & Bulk Materials Terminal Restart/Expansion in Darrow, Louisiana. Beard’s scope of work includes demolition of an existing storage facility and construction of a 20-Acre new coal storage pad and 5-Acre dust suppression pond for coal run-off, conveyor foundations, electrical houses, high mast light pole foundations and dozer traps. Trafigura/Impala plans to invest around $100 Million to reopen the currently idled Burnside facility as a state-of-the-art major bulk terminal for coal, bauxite and alumina. It will be only the fourth facility—and the only one with the possibility of both rail-to-vessel and barge-to-vessel capabilities—on the Mississippi and is set to become one of the top ten coal and bulk logistics facilities in the USA. Once complete, the company is targeting a throughput of around 10 million metric tonnes annually, using bulk cargo ships of up to 120,000 deadweight tonnes.
