Building work has begun on the UK’s largest grain terminal at the Port of Tilbury, after it was damaged in a fire.

Demolition of the silo concrete towers has started following the fire in July last year, which is still under investigation.

Construction of new metal silos is also underway, with full storage capacity expected to be restored by 2023

Peter Ward, Commercial Director at The Port of Tilbury said, “The grain terminal is a vital asset at The Port of Tilbury and plays a major role in supplying businesses with the grain needed to support their brands.

“Following the fire last summer, we worked hard to ensure there was limited interruption to customer service and now with the new silos being constructed, we can be confident that the new facility will set the highest industry standards for silo construction.

“In the meantime, we want to extend our thanks to our customer base for the loyalty and support they have shown us through what has been a difficult period.”

The Tilbury Grain terminal has been in operation for over 50 years and handles over 2 million tonnes of grain from around the world.

Customer service will continue as normal whilst the construction work is being carried out and the terminal remains fully open for imports and exports.
