New rail trans-shipment facility for Lafarge in North Dakota

Lafarge North America has signed a deal to build a cement trans-loading site in Williston, North Dakota.

According to local press, the storage site and terminal will be located on a new rail spur on the east side of the town.

Lafarge North America says that it will allow the company to better serve its customers amid growing demand for construction materials in North Dakota and South Dakota

Roy Sander, general manager of Lafarge Dakotas, noted that the new rail line will remove the company’s existing truck traffic from US Highway 2.

North and South Dakota are growing states for cement consumption. As well as traditional construction cements for standard applications, the presence of the Bakken oil field means that the states also require oil well cements and products for soil stabilisation.
