Ambre Energy subsidiary Coyote Island Terminals, LLC, has applied to Portland District for a Department of the Army permit to build a new coal transfer facility at the Port of Morrow on the Columbia River near Boardman, Oregon. Coal would be brought to the facility via rail, transferred to barges, shipped down the Columbia River to Port Westward near Clatskanie, Oregon, and loaded onto ocean-going vessels for export.
The facility would include nine dolphins, walkways, a fixed dock and a conveyor system for loading coal, along with enclosed warehouses in the uplands for storing coal prior to loading onto the barges. Approximately 140 permanent piles ranging from 14 to 24 inches in diameter and 110 temporary 16-inch diameter piles would be installed to complete the project. Over 15,000 square feet of new overwater structure would be constructed.
