New sugar silo in Nordstemmen increases storage capacity and flexibility
Nordzucker has started construction of a new sugar silo in Nordstemmen. The silo will considerably increase storage capacity at the Nordstemmen site, reduce truck traffic and significantly increase flexibility.
Work on the silo’s foundations began in September. It will have a capacity of around 80,000 tonnes of sugar and will be 54 metres high with an internal diameter of 57 metres. The height will be similar to the four existing silos in Nordstemmen. The completion date is planned for the end of 2024.
The construction of the silo and the associated increased storage capacity for granulated sugar will not only make Nordzucker much more flexible, but will also optimise logistics and reduce transport routes and thus CO2 emissions. This is another project that is in line with the Nordzucker Group’s excellence and sustainability strategy.
