ALCIVIA to Open New Facility in Hager City

ALCIVIA purchased 40 acres and over 21,000 linear feet of Class I Burlington Northern Railroad track in Hager City, Wisconsin, where a new state-of-the-art rail loading grain terminal will be built. The facility will bring grain terminal assets to producers in west central Wisconsin and southeast Minnesota. In addition to the grain facility, ALCIVIA has plans to build a 24-hour unattended, two-bay loading terminal for liquid fertilizer. They also plan to build a dry fertilizer transload, rail liquid propane unload, and storage at this site.

Features of the new grain facility will include upright grain storage space for 3.9 million bushels serviced by two 4,700-bushel per hour grain dryers. There will also be three 1,500-bushel capacity dump pits that will move grain at a combined handling speed of 60,000 bushels per hour. 

Once built, ALCIVIA will have three shuttle loading facilities on three different Class I railroads (BN, UP, CP). This provides them access to the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers, and logistics to domestic corn ethanol plants and soybean crush plants. This positions ALCIVIA with highly desirable domestic and export market access and arbitrage.

“It is our mission to advance our customers through innovative and responsible solutions,” shared ALCIVIA CEO, Jim Dell. “This new site will provide tremendous value to our members by offering state-of-the-art speed, space, and market access and utility. We are thrilled to be adding additional domestic and export market access that will have a positive impact on ALCIVIA members across our territory.”

Demolition is set to begin this month with groundbreaking scheduled for later this winter. The estimated project completion date is March 2025.
