Your Hometown Newspaper Since 1899 Tuesday, December 31, 2013 Expansion at Wenner's Rockville facility will make it one of Nation's largest LP gas storage sites Company adding 320,000 gallon capacity '- Successful business operators see a need and they fill it. That's what happened several years ago when Wenner Gas Company built an LP-gas rail transfer fa- cility near Rockville. Cold Spring's Wenner Compa- ny started as a general store in 1880 and gradually changed to the hardware store it is today in dowptown Cold Spring. It was 19404hen the company began selling 100 lb. tanks of propane gas and from that part of the business, the Wenner Gas Com- pany was born. Currently Wenner Gas Com- pany uses delivery trucks to transport LP gas to about 1,400 retail customers in this area. There are peak times of the year when more propane is used, such as corn drying time when farm- ers purchase propane to operate their dryers. Other uses in the retail sector include home heat, water heaters, cooking and some vehicle fuel usage. Changes in how LP gas is transported and the limited stor- age capacity in the area spurred the need for a large storage facil- ity. That facility would need to be near a railroad so railcars could transport the fuel to the storage sight. Wenner Gas Com- pany originally looked into ex- panding in Cold Spring, but Cold Spring, Rockville and Richmond had started work on a different use for the railroad bed running between the towns - the RO- CORI Trail was in the planning stages so the gas company had to look for property with access to a railroad. Wenner Gas Company pur- chased 11 acres just east of Rockville on Highway 23 that is near 1-94 and a rail spur was constructed to provide railcar ac- cess to the storage facility. The company started with a 300,000 gallon capacity. Although a little apprehen- sive when the origifial storage facility was constructel', the Wenners began to realize they needed even more capacity and have recently began adding eight 40,000 gallon tanks that will increase the total storage capacity to 620,000 gallons. The company will be capable of mov- ing 900,000 gallons of LP gas each day. Fourth generation brothers Carl, Pat and Jim Wenner be- lieve they could move as many as 60 million gallons of propane fuel through the storage facility each year. With the physical changes to the facility comes a new name, the transfer station began oper- ating under the name Rockville Propane Terminal in November after the creation of a limited li- ability company (LLC) between Wenner Gas Company and CHS, Inc. CHS is an energy, grains and foods company and the na- tion's leading farmer-owned co- operative. The new LLC will ac- cess and distribute propane from the expanded terminal to serve CHS customers and new cus- tomers in the Central Minnesota area. Seeing a need and filling it has helped make the Rockville Propane Terminal one of the largest LP-gas rail transfer facil- ities in the United States. ........ t s wiees St. Boniface Assumpti Camp :Holy Cross- Pearl Lake Cold Spring New Year's Eve 4:30 p.m. New Year's Day 9:30 a.m. St. James- Jacobs Prairie New Year's Eve 8:00 p.m. New Cold ',: : New Year's Eve 4:00 p.m. ....... of the Immaculate Conception Church- Rockville New Year's Day 9:00 a.m. Sts.
