Tilbury rebuilds after grain silo fire

[ March 25, 2021   //   ]

Rebuilding work is underway at the UK’s largest grain terminal at the Port of Tilbury following a fire in July 2020 which damaged its grain silos. Demolition of the damaged concrete silos is underway and, at the same time, construction of phase one of metal silos is underway with the first three new silos having been constructed. Phase one is expected to return 20,000 tonnes of capacity in early 2022 and the remaining 34,000 tonnes of storage will be restored in 2023.
