ABP has recently reopened its Bentinck silo at the Port of King’s Lynn, following a £400 000 refurbishment to enhance storage capacity.
Following significant expansion, the silo now offers ABP’s customers in King’s Lynn an additional 6000 t of grain storage. This represents an expansion in silo storage capacity of almost 25%, to 32 000 t 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.”
