LICKING RIVER TERMINAL: A SHOWCASE IN COAL HANDLING

This article describes a new transportation gateway opened by Oglebay Norton Co. to link the coalfields of southern Kentucky with the riverports of the Midwest. Operating at a 2600-tph minimum capacity, the Licking River rail-to-barge terminal near Cincinnati, Ohio, features a floating dock system that simplifies barge loading regardless of the Ohio river water levels. Low-sulfur Kentucky coal is delivered by barge fleets to electric power generating stations that lie along the river.
