Tilbury silos complete

[ November 29, 2021   //   ]

Forth Ports has completed building of  ten 30-metre-high silos at the UK’s largest grain terminal at Tilbury. The works got underway earlier this year following a fire in 2020 which damaged part of the concrete silo.

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 of 135,000 tonnes.

The terminal also operates a monthly coastal shipping service from Tilbury to its sister port in Kirkcaldy, Scotland for Carr’s Milling.
