SPG port's grain silo project receives completion acceptance
Phase II of the Dongjiakou Grain Silo project – located at Qingdao Port in East China's Shandong province and operated by Shandong Port Group or SPG – received its completion acceptance on Jan 14.
The development marked a major step forwards for the development of strong upstream and downstream grain and oil industries, with a new gain on the annual turnover capacity of 2.6 million tons. The new facility is expected to play a significant role in the secure grain supply of Shandong and even the entire country.
The project, located to the north of phase I, consists of 26 concrete silos, each with a single diameter of 25 meters and a height of 40 m. The design capacity of a single silo is 10,000 tons, bringing to 260,000 tons the total new storage capacity – and with an expected annual turnover capacity of 2.6 million tons.
Connecting to phase I, it will streamline the whole process of handling, bagging and loading in a packing building. The total investment is 798 million yuan ($125.6 million).
Differing from conventional grain storage facilities, the new silo project adopts over 20 innovative items both in design and processes – assuring more intelligent, safer and eco-friendly operations.
The specialized packing building technology is said to realize the large-scale process of "shifting bulk shipping into container shipping" for bulk grain, with safer grain storage guaranteed via temperature monitors and ventilators.
