A £400,000 refurbishment project to boost the Port of King’s Lynn’s grain storage has come to fruition.

Following investment by the Associated British Ports (ABP), the port has re-opened its Bentinck silo, resulting in an extra 6,000 tonnes of storage.

The work has meant a significant expansion in silo storage of almost 25 per cent to 32,000 tonnes in total, across 40 individual bins. 

Customers using the silo will also be able to use the weighbridge facilities and an additional grain processing lab for quality testing.

Kim Kennedy, Lynn port manager, said: “We are always striving to provide the best storage and value-added solutions for our customers and this latest investment is a prime example of this.

“It was great to see grain coming over the weighbridge and being seamlessly fed into the silo, allowing our customers to benefit from the enhanced operational efficiency.”
