With a party on the rooftop the new Eurosilo at Yara Porsgrunn was officially put into operation. This 20.000 m3 silo will store calcium nitrate, a fertilizer. On the huge slewing bridge at the top of the silo, the party was organized. With several presentations the guests, such as project team, employees and key suppliers were introduced to the working principle of the Eurosilo.
The management not only explained the concept of the new silo, but also stressed the very fruitful cooperation with ESI during the project. In total we worked closely together for a year, from designing to final commissioning. The new silo forms the logistic link between the production of calcium nitrate, with an infeed of 150 tph and the ship loading operation with 1,000 tph. It is part of Yara Porsgrunn’s growth strategy to scale up their production volumes.
