A line of four new 12 metre diameter hopper bottom storage silos sit alongside a water way waiting for incoming maize. These silos, erected in 2012, are some of the largest hopper bottom silos in Europe.
Each silo holds 1,550 tonnes of maize with a bulk density of 721 kg/m³ and is fed by a single 350 tons per hour chain and flight conveyor. The conveyor is supported on a custom designed top catwalk system which is 4.00 metres wide. The top catwalk features full width decking allowing the operators the maximum available area for maintenance.
