Ideal Form was appointed by Graham Construction to construct 10 No Silos at the Port of Immingham. Ideal Form was responsible for the Rebar and Formwork package as well as providing the Crawler Cranes, with machines ranging from 100 Ton to 250 Ton.
The silos were slip formed and were approximately 37 metres in diameter with an average height of approximately 54 metres. The first five of the ten silos were completed in 2013 and the final five silos completed in late 2014. The slip form was operated on a 24 hour basis with the shutter rising approximately 300mm per hour.
