30/04/2015: Texas, USA port grain elevator facility: proposals for future use wanted


The authorities in the port of Brownsville, Texas, have issued an official request to the general public for written proposals for the future use of the port's grain elevator facility.   

The deadline for proposals is May 13 at 5pm local time.    

The initial intention is to continue to use the elevator for grain export purposes, but other uses will be considered.    


The Port of Brownsville is located in Cameron County at the very southern tip of Texas and is the only deep-water port on the US-Mexico border.

The port’s rail service is provided by the Brownsville & Rio Grande International Railway.   

The facility was built in the 1960s and today is in good to poor condition, having suffered extensive damage during Hurricane Dolly in 2008. However, the automation in the control room looks serviceable and overall the mechanical and electrical systems appear in good condition.
