ANC Transloading has entered into a working agreement with Premay Pipe Hauling LP and as a result of this agreement 16 rail cars of 54″ pipe were transloaded at ANC Transload’s Whitecourt facility. We are very excited with this new working relationship as it assists us with diversification of products being handled at our Transload locations. The two ANC Transload sites Whitecourt and Marsh Head which is just off of Hwy 947 south are very strategically located for the anticipated pipeline projects in this area. Not only are we able to offer track space for the rail cars of pipe, but we also have sufficient space to be able to also offer pipe laydown areas. Currently we have over 25 acres occupied as pipe laydown areas between our two locations.
ANC Transloading Inc. commissioned a fully functional Frac Sand Transload station on January 6, 2015. ANCTI entered in to an agreement with Trican to transload Frac Sand through the ANCTI Whitecourt facility. The fully functional drive through facility has trucks loading on scales to ensure exact loading weights into each compartment on multi compartment trailers.
ANCTI is fully expecting to expand their Frac Sand Transload capabilities by looking at additional track and a sand storage facility at some point in the near future.
While the ANCTI Whitecourt facility is currently fully utilized insofar as Frac Sand, we continue to look for opportunities to develop a similar setup at our Marsh Head location which is located at the end of Hwy 947 and south of Hwy 43. This location has great access to the ANC Haul road and is in close proximity to Fox Creek, Alberta.
