Major building works at the UK’s largest grain terminal at the Port of Tilbury London Ltd reaches a milestone with the construction of ten new giant metal grain silos. The works got underway earlier this year following a fire* in 2020 which damaged part of the concrete silo.
Building of the ten silos, at a height of 30 metres, and a total combined capacity of 20,000 metric tonnes, was completed this month. The industry leading design has been constructed to the highest health and safety standards and with an independent transfer and reclaim system also now being constructed, these silos will be back in operation for the 2022 harvest.
Demolition of the damaged concrete silos at the terminal is also now complete and the port will shortly appoint a contractor to replace these concrete silos for a return to full operations in 2023, restoring the original storage capacity.
