Magellan Terminal Holdings operates a major petroleum storage terminal in Wilmington, Delaware, which serves the mid-Atlantic region. Located on the Christina River at its confluence with the Delaware River, the terminal has 32 storage tanks with a combined capacity of 2.8 million barrels of a variety of refined liquid petroleum product, which is loaded and unloaded from tankers and barges at two ship berths. Three existing timber berthing dolphins serving Berth No. 2 were in very poor condition and required replacement.
Kleinfelder’s solution enabled barge deliveries to continue at Berth No. 2 while construction of the replacement dolphins progressed, so that the petroleum storage terminal remained in full operation at all times.
