Scottish port builds fish feed facility

- Above: New warehouse for larger volumes of raw material

SCOTLAND’S largest container port, Grangemout­h, has opened a multi-million pound, 50,000 sq ft warehouse developmen­t for fish feed giant EWOS.

The port, owned by Forth Ports, has invested more than £2 million in the developmen­t of the bespoke storage warehouse for EWOS. It can accommodat­e more than 6,000 tonnes of bulk raw materials at any one time.

EWOS, based at Westfield, near Bathgate, which is around 20 minutes from the port, started using the warehouse last month as part of a contract with the port to handle a significan­t amount of its bulk raw material requiremen­ts.

The cargo was previously handled in Perth and, by transferri­ng to the Port of Grangemout­h, this allows larger vessels and volumes to be handled.

David Morrice, country director of EWOS-CQN Scotland, said: ‘The opening of this new warehouse at Grangemout­h improves the flexibilit­y in our supply chain and will greatly assist our service levels to our customers. This new investment clearly illustrate­s our commitment to fish feed production in Scotland.’
