Port of Oswego Readies Soybean Operation Expansion
Expansion will increase handling capacity by three times
The Port of Oswego has been awarded $15 million in state funding toward the construction of the Central New York Agriculture Export Center, reports Local SYR.
The expansion will allow the Port to handle about three times as much soybean as it can handle currently.
“The new facility is going to connect to our existing grain buildings to create," Port Executive Director and CEO, Bill Scriber, told Local SYR. "I guess you could call it, a super storage system."
The project will include an 85-foot-high by 200-foot-diameter silo, USDA-scale system, on-site lab and a rail component.
