Update on Louis Dreyfus Projects
Yorkton, Saskatchewan, Canada — Work continues at two locations on projects with global commodities leader Louis Dreyfus.
At the Yorkton, Saskatchewan, Canada, site, the dome is constructed, and crews are working on building the tunnels and installing the Laidig screw, a clean-sweep reclaim system. The entire project should wrap up the end of April 2016. When completed, the dome will stand 110 feet in diameter and 104 feet tall and will hold up to 11,500 metric tons of canola pellets.
In Cahokia, Illinois, dome construction has recently begun. A Geopier foundation system is in place, and the tunnel and center reclaim vault are complete. The ringwall is being constructed, as is the truckpit for offloading product onto the inbound conveyor. The crew will also be tying into an existing rail line, providing access to a rail pit on site. Projected completion for this dome is the first part of October 2016, and the dome will measure 127 feet in diameter and 99 feet tall, holding 18,000 metric tons of grain.
