CSP Continues to Assist the Port of Tilbury Grain Terminal

CSP are delighted to continue to assist, as Consulting Civil and Structural Engineers, the Port of Tilbury Grain Terminal, on reconstruction of the 10 new steel silos for Silo Bin 3, as featured on BBChttps://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-essex-59459372.

The construction of Silo Bin 3 consists of 10 new steel 30m high silos with a capacity of 20,000 tonnes due to be back on line for the 2022 harvest. The Silo Bin 3 phase of works is being undertaken by TH White Installation Ltd.

We also continue to support the Grain Terminal in the reconstruction of Silo Bin 4, damaged in the fire July 2020, of 30 silos, 30m high, in reinforced concrete due for completion in 2023. A Letter of Intent for the reconstruction of Silo Bin 4 has been issued to PJ Carey (Contractors) Ltd with M&E aspects being undertaken by TH White Installation Ltd under contract to PJ Careys.

The Tilbury Grain terminal is the key strategic facility in the South East of the UK for the grain import and export markets handling grain from around the world supporting the flour and ingredient market for the southeast, London and up to the Midlands. Its riverside berths have space to host post-panamax vessels – greater than 40,000 tonnes – but can also handle a range of coaster vessels on its inner, outer and coaster berths.
