Kinder Morgan Port Sutton Terminal – Process Plant Design – 2010
Matrix PDM Engineering provided multi-discipline engineering design for the development of a new storage building, reclaim system and truck loadout system equipped with new scales for the Tampa, FL, facility.
The new bulk storage building was designed as a warehouse to meet site constraints, while maximizing storage capacity for multiple product divisions. The building receives product from the existing ship and rail receiving systems.
The terminal will provide storage for urea, ammonia nitrate, ammonia sulfate, potash and diammonium phosphate (DAP).
Principal features include:
Facility designed for maximum protection against highly corrosive environment
Product storage in a warehouse with a tee extension to maximize storage capacity due to site constraints
Ability for various sized bays to store eight different grades of dry fertilizer
Incoming distribution system to new warehouse via tripper belt at 700 tph
Interface to existing ship and rail receiving systems
Two new truck loadout systems operating at 400 tph
Automation of equipment provided by a PLC and HMI system
Integration of new scales for the loadout system
Scope of Work
- Bulk storage and truck loadout system
- Multi-discipline, preliminary, and final engineering design
- Procurement assistance
