Tebodin in the media: Dry Cargo
The article 'Tebodin develops sustainable feed production facility in Wanssum', is published in the latest issue of the English magazine for the international dry bulk market 'Dry Cargo International'. It tells the story of the great cooperation of Vitelia Voeders and Tebodin, in realising a new raw material storage and processing plant.
The new terminal is directly located at the port of Wanssum, not only facilitates and ensures the raw material supply for the two existing production plants of the feed manufacturer in the near vicinity, but also reduces the CO2 emissions significantly, saving four million kilometres of transport by truck.
The Tebodin engineers designed a hexagonal high-rise concrete silo, with a total height of sixty metres, comprising all associated facilities and installations. The result of the excellent collaboration between Dutch feed manufacturer Vitelia Voeders, consulting & engineering company Tebodin and the project stakeholders involved is impressive.
A large new concrete silo complex was built in 1.5 years. The raw material silos with a storage capacity of approximately 20,000 tonnes has a ship intake capacity of 350 tonnes per hour and is able to load three trucks simultaneously within six minutes. Moreover, the storage facility is fully automated.
The primary reason why Vitelia choose Tebodin as engineering partner for this particular project was the company’s expertise in feed and agro terminals.
