Huron Bay Co-operative has released a statement celebrating the official opening of its newly built 7000 t capacity fertilizer blending and storage facility at its Walkerton, Canada, location.

Located on the co-operative’s 40 acre site, the new facility is capable of carrying up to 12 different products at the same time.

Jeff Hurst, Huron Bay Co-operative General Manager, said: “The 60 ft tower houses six, 20 t holding bins making it more efficient for local farmers who want to have their order ready upon arrival.”

The 18 000 ft2 floor space is equipped with in-floor heating throughout to maintain a dry environment for storage of product. Huron Bay claims that the facility is also capable of mixing and loading 400-plus tpd of blended mixes through the two 12 t vertical mixers and can by-pass the mixers and load straight product if necessary.

Huron Bay President, Sam Luckhardt, added: “This new system is fast and efficient and will have a great impact in fulfilling the year-round demands of many of our growers managing hay-ground and grass pastures along with the regular spring grains, canola, corn, soybeans and winter wheat.”

Alongside the 90’ weigh-scale is a new sales and customer-service office equipped with showers for employees. Hurst claims the extra office space is a good safety practice keeping the dust levels down and keeping customers in a safe zone.
