A nearly complete 12,000-foot loop train track at the Ohio Commerce Center in Lordstown is among the key components of what Halcon Resources Corp. says eventually may be a $70 million fuel depot.
Savage, a multinational, privately owned company, hopes to be a major player in the development of those facilities at the 480-acre Commerce Center on Tod Avenue one mile north of Salt Springs Road.
Already, Savage and the center have completed the installation of a $60,000 truck scale on the five acres Savage now leases.
Savage also leases one train track and has an $80,000 portable conveyor on site ready to handle the unloading and loading of frack sand that will arrive by rail and be loaded into trucks.
