One of the most common use cases for silos is the agriculture industry, offering the ability to store silage and a variety of grain types. However, silos are also useful when it comes to storing cement, coal, woodchips, sawdust, and a variety of food products. Currently there are three main silo types that are widespread all over the world – bag silos, bunker silos and tower silos.
Steel is one of the more common materials that can be used to create a silo, and there are plenty of steel fabrication companies that are capable of performing such a feat. Additionally, it is not particularly uncommon for a silo to be assembled using multiple different parts that are made by different teams or companies. This specific project that Levstal performed is one such example – multiple steel silo parts for a client from Finland, with the collective weight of 70 tonnes.
