Younglove provided its turnkey construction services for the United Grain Terminal Improvement Project in Vancouver, Washington, as follows:
- Twenty-four 35-foot-diameter by 140-foot-tall concrete silos with a receiving capacity of 3,000 tons per hour and a reclaim/blending capacity of 2,400 tons per hour. These silos are equipped with 45-degree steel cone hoppers with linear gates and continuous level detection.
- Three 80-foot-diameter by 140-foot-tall flat bottom concrete silos with a receiving capacity of 1,500 tons per hour and a reclaim/blending capacity of 800 tons per hour. These silos are equipped with temperature detection, linear gates, continuous level detection, and Laidig bin sweeps.
- A unique 340-foot-tall concrete slipform tower/silo complex designed to house the cleaning, weighing tower, and shipping bins all in one structure due to space limitation and to minimize grain breakage. The tower consists of 1,800-ton-per-hour cleaning capacity for corn and soybeans, 2,400-ton-per-hour weighing capacity, 265,000 bushels of concrete grain storage in the form of five shipping bins, and 2,400-ton-per-hour shipping.
- An enclosed screening and dust loadout driveway consisting of two 35-foot-diameter by 140-foot-tall concrete screening bins and one 12-foot-diameter by 40-foot-tall steel dust tank. This area is completely enclosed to reduce dust emissions and is equipped with a 120-ton-per-hour weigh lorry scale with a DCL telescoping spout for truck loading.
Size/Capacity: 4.5 million bushels grain storage, 3,000-ton-per-hour receiving, 1,800-ton-per-hour cleaning, and 2,400-ton-per-hour shipping
