June 13, 2012 – Bristol Port Company has applied for permission to build up to 16 concrete silos at Royal Portbury Dock to store pellets.
According to an article from This Is Bristol, the 50 metres high by 30 metres wide silos would contain up to 15,000 tonnes of imported pellets each from North and South America. The pellets would be stores until transferred by conveyors to a new rail system.
But, nearby parish councillors are upset about the proposal and the visual impact it will have on the environment.
Bristol Port Company spokeswoman Sue Turner said: "We are working
through the technical options for the storing and transporting of wood
pellets. The scheme is still in the very early stages."
