Global Companies LLC- New Windsor Terminal

As of October 2014, Global has requested to withdraw its permit application at New Windsor.

In August 2013, Global Companies LLC submitted a permit application to DEC to redevelop a former industrial shipyard into a railcar transloading facility in the Town of New Windsor and modify its existing air permits for three adjacent Major Oil Storage Facilities (MOSF's) terminals owned by Global. As proposed, once the site is redeveloped the facility would receive petroleum products by rail and distribute them to existing storage tanks located at adjacent NYSDEC-licensed MOSF terminals. The proposed project also includes a new Article 15 Protection of Waters permit for work proposed along the Hudson River. DEC received application revisions in November 2013 and January 2014. Global's proposed project at their existing New Windsor, NY facilities would include:

  • redevelopment of a former industrial shipyard and metals refinery, currently accepted in the New York State Brownfield Cleanup Program (BCP) for site remediation, into a railcar transloading facility;

  • the interconnection of the three separate MOSF's owned by Global with one another and the railcar transloading facility (including installation of pipelines and associated pumps);

  • a change of product and use for some existing bulk storage tanks at the MOSF's from distillate product storage to volatile organic liquid and installation of internal floating roofs within those storage tanks;

  • construction of two marine Vapor Combustion Units (VCUs) at the south and north terminal docks to control vapors from proposed marine loading operations;

  • installation of marine loading arms at the Global Newburgh Terminal and Global North Terminal docks;

  • installation of steam and/or hot oil boilers for heating of rail cars and tanks; and

  • a 500-square-foot expansion of the North Terminal marine dock (including installation/driving six support H-piles) within the Hudson River.

In support of DEC's review of the pending applications for this work, DEC sent a notice of incomplete application to Global on March 24 seeking additional information.

In October 2014, Global withdrew its permit application (PDF) for the New Windsor location.
