Moose Jaw and area farmers will soon have more access to fuel.
“There’s a new Co-op owned bulk fuel plant to be constructed in Moose Jaw,” said Daryl Oshanek, spokesperson for Federated Co-op. “It will substantially increase the fuel capacity available in the area for farmers during the peak spring and fall periods.”
The city executive committee recently sold 3.87 acres of land on the northern outskirts of the city toward Saskatoon to Federated Co-op for $137,000. Oshanek said the site preparation will begin in spring 2013 and the facility will be operational by the end of 2013.
He said the fuel capacity available to Moose Jaw and area is currently 2.6 million litres annually. The facility will increase the area’s capacity to 3.7 million litres per year.
