Multi-Product Dock and Terminal Expansion Cover Image

Kinder Morgan – Shipyard River Terminal

Location: Charleston, South Carolina

The Shipyard River Terminal (SRT) was expanded in 2001 to enhance the terminal’s ability to handle non-cement related products including clinker, potash, bituminous and sub-bituminous coal, salt, urea and asphalt.

In 2000, Matrix PDM Engineering transformed the original SRT berth known as Dock #1 into one of the most efficient cement facilities in the world. Six months later, construction began on Dock #2 and its related infrastructure and components.

Matrix PDM worked with the client to provide an economic feasibility study, preliminary and final engineering and construction management for the expansion of Dock #2. Design included modification to the existing dock and a new inbound conveyor system to transport various commodities. Additionally, new storage, reclaim and truck and rail loading solutions were designed for the facility expansion.

Principal features:

  • Inbound conveyor system consisting of 54-inch belts with variable conveying rates
  • Warehouse system with a two-directional tripper capable of receiving material from docks #1 and #2
  • Fuel product outdoor storage piles created by a series of stacking tubes and radial stackers
  • Tunnel reclaim system comprised of a series of variable feed vibrating feeders
  • New unit train loading station, capable of loading a train in less than eight hours
  • Covered truck/rail loading, using front end loaders
  • Existing dock modified and lengthened to receive Panamax-size vessels
