Kings Lynn has been a port town for many centuries, with longstanding trading links forged with North European countries and the Baltic States. It has a reputation for providing a flexible and professional service, regarding the specialist agricultural commodities originating from the region.
The 25,000 tonne Alexandra Silo complex, developed in conjunction with the client, represents a £3.8 million investment for Associated British Ports. It’s a ‘state of the art’ facility designed to answer to the need for a dockside facility capable of receiving “as grown” crops to be dried, processed, stored and then out loaded to either the sea or the road.
Openfield is one of the UK’s largest grain marketing and arable input businesses. The high capacity Seed Processing Plant was designed and constructed on a new concept basis and is now one of the largest and most modern seed plants of its kind in the UK, with one of the most strategic locations for distribution.
This £1.75 million facility has the capacity to process 20,000 tonnes of seed per annum, with peak processing capacity of over 500 tonnes of seed per day, ensuring fast turnaround.
Wiltshire Grain is a farmer-owned, professionally managed cooperative, run for the benefit of its members to add value to their businesses. The cooperative and central storage was launched in 1984 with just 52 members. The initial storage capacity of 20,000 tonnes was constructed by T H White Projects.
The first phase of new plant development followed in 1997 and various phases have followed. The facility now provides a 101,000t capacity to 152 members. In recent years, European grant-funding was obtained, allowing for the phased design approach to be completed and future-proofed to support their steadily growing membership and, of course, the recent increase in supply demand.
Throughout the various phases, T H White Projects conceptualised the designs, planned and implemented the build, whilst also acting as the principal contractor through the various commissioning and customer hand-over stages.
Angus Cereals is a farmer-owned, professionally managed cooperative, run for the benefit of its members to add value to their businesses.
This plant was a two-phase quayside development for Angus Cereals for the Port of Montrose on the east coast of Scotland. In recent years, the port has undergone considerable expansion, largely to serve the offshore oil industry. This sheltered haven at the mouth of the River Esk has excellent road and rail links in all directions, which made it the perfect choice for Angus Cereals for its grain facility.
As a quayside store owned by a farmer membership, Angus Cereals is another step forward as a strategically important store to capture value in the supply chain. As T H WHITE has a long history in the design and construction of large-scale grain handling and storage facilities, they were the obvious choice for this two-phase development.
Camgrain are the UK’s largest farmer-owned cooperative, established in 1983. Their overriding ambition is to be ‘well-managed, well-informed and well connected’.
Currently, they are the UK’s only farmer-owned network of coordinated advanced processing centre (APC) stores. To meet the needs of their nationwide success, a new breed of cooperative grain store was required.
To meet this requirement, T H White Projects assisted in the development, planning and construction of Camgrain’s flagship APC at Balsham, along with the other APCs at Linton, Kettering and Stratford.
Now fully operational, and specialising in food grade wheat, it can provide even more added value to the supply chain, future-proofing the company against increasing grain supply demands.
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.
