Silos for grain and rice storage

The UAE, which imports more than 90% of its food needs, thereforefore the strategic Grain Reserve is vital.

The UAE, which imports more than 90% of its food needs, thereforefore the strategic Grain Reserve is vital. The Federal Strategic Grain Reserve Project consisted of 20 silos for grain and rice storage. The silos located at the port of Fujairah, which lies outside the Strait of Hormuz, have the capacity to store up to 300,000 tonnes of grain, enough for a strategic supply of around six months. The Fujairah silos, in addition to holding a strategic reserve, are also used to store grain for re-export. The roofs of the Grain silos were sealed and insulated using VIPShield Combo Roofing System.
In addition the walls of the silos were sealed using VIPShield FM500 for long term waterproofing. The project was undertaken by a VIP “Elite Applicator” under the
Technical supervision of VIP Technical Services.
