While plans are still in the works, construction of the plant would cost more than $1.6 billion.

The operation is expected to bring 500 full-time jobs with more than 1,000 workers hired to help build the facility.​​

Brownsville Navigation District Chairman John Wood says the company is attracted to the Port of Brownsville due to its proximity to automobile manufacturers in Mexico.
