A major cooperative grain drying and storage project for Aberdeen Grain UK

Aberdeen Grain is a farmer owned, grain cooperative based in Aberdeenshire. Established in 1984, they began with 32 members, 20,000 tonnes of storage and one 88tph dryer. In 2009, that storage capacity had increased to 65, 000 tonnes.

By 2011, they had over 180 active members, and therefore needed to substantially increase their intake, grain drying and storage supply.

To meet this need, T H WHITE helped them plan, design and construct a major grain storage and drying project allowing for a considerable intake ability. In doing so, they had added considerable value to the company, attracting potential new member and effectively future-proofing the company against increasing grain supply demands.

  • Our trust in T H WHITE and working with them closely on Aberdeen Grain’s cooperative grain storage and drying facility has proved to be an excellent partnership. We operate in a complex market, so we were very particular in our choice of partner & project expectations. They understood our needs from the offset, and were able to fully understand our market, our business and our vision.

    Bruce Ferguson, Managing Director

  • We’re really proud of our long-standing relationship and significant achievements with Aberdeen Grain. By working closely with our customer, we were able to fully understand their project needs and in doing so develop a phased approach and resulting project solution which made their objectives a reality.

    Ken Spreadbury, Technical Director

    In summary

    Because of the T H WHITE unique end-to-end support levels, they could work as an integrated unit with their project engineering and product teams on the Aberdeen Grain Project. The teams continue to interact and optimise on their facilities’ successes, providing ongoing servicing and maintenance, to help meet and achieve Aberdeen Grain’s phased growing requirements.
