TAC Energy constructs Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) distribution hub within petroleum terminal

Niels Tholen - 15 January 2013

A new Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) distribution hub under development by TAC Energy is close to completion. The facility in North Little Rock, AR, is planned to come online in February and is located at Arkansas Terminaling & Trading, a petroleum terminal providing truck drivers with both diesel and DEF.

The distribution hub will be supplied by rail from neighboring Terra Environmental Technologies. Product will then be unloaded into multiple tanks at the terminal and into distribution vehicles with typical capacity of 5000 gallons.

The bulk DEF rail trans-loading facility will provide larger volumes, faster speed pumps and greater efficiency, according to Ron Klein, TAC Energy Diesel Exhaust Fluid Business Manager. "What this means for our customers is a more efficient supply chain and single terminal of both diesel fuel and DEF," said Klein in a company press release. "Higher speed pumps at the rack mean more loads per driver. Additionally, TAC Energy customers can simply add DEF to their existing Loading Number at the terminal; ensuring seamless back office integration while eliminating the need for driver retraining. This all equates to lower operating costs for our customers."

Ken Martin, Regional Distribution Sales Manager at TerraCair said: "The exciting thing about the terminal arrangement is not only that it has state of the art truck loading and 24/7 availability, but that it has a DEF terminal operating within a petroleum terminal."
