King's Lynn invests in grain capacity

King's Lynn invests in grain capacity

(Posted on 15/10/19)

ABP has recently re-opened its Bentinck silo at the Port of King’s Lynn, following a £400,000 refurbishment to enhance storage capacity.

ABP is the UK’s leading and best-connected port owner and operator with a network of 21 ports around Britain.
Following significant expansion, the silo now offers ABP’s customers in King’s Lynn an additional 6,000 metric tonnes (mt) of grain storage. This represents an expansion in silo storage capacity of almost 25%, to 32,000mt in total, across 40 individual bins. The silo is also an ideal location for blending and storing smaller commodity volumes, providing customers with even greater flexibility.

Customers using the silo will also be able to benefit from the excellent weighbridge facilities as well as an additional grain processing lab located at the port, which provides quality-testing equipment.
Kim Kennedy, ABP Port Manager at the Port of King’s Lynn, said: “We are always striving to provide the best storage and value-added solutions for our customers and this latest investment is a prime example of this.
“It was great to see grain coming over the weighbridge and being seamlessly fed into the silo, allowing our customers to benefit from the enhanced operational efficiency.”
