Durable storage for corrosive materials in a harsh climate

Yara UK, Belfast

Yara's harbour storage and handling facility



A golden opportunity

Yara UK’s fertiliser storage and bagging facility at Belfast Harbour was in need of expensive refurbishment.

Because fertiliser had corroded the structure and flooring, the most cost-effective plan would be to demolish the existing building and rebuild.

It was a golden opportunity for Yara to plan out a new and improved working floor plan.

“The project ran like clockwork; nothing seemed like a problem for the site team!

“I look forward to working with Collinson again in the future. The double-skinned tensile facility provides the perfect solution for maritime storage in harsh environments, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them again.”
