Grain processing and storage solutions provider Ag Growth International (AGI) issued a statement on Tuesday after a grain storage bin it produced collapsed in an incident last Friday at the Fibreco Export Inc. export terminal in North Vancouver, BC.
“The grain storage bin that collapsed is part of a new and distinct product line that was developed and manufactured by the company for two significant commercial projects. 15 of these bins are located at the facility where the incident occurred and an additional 20 have been manufactured for another customer but have not yet been commissioned,” AGI wrote in a release. “As part of its standard protocol, in investigating this incident the company will be investigating all bins in the product line.”
A cause of the bin failure has not been established, according to the company. No injuries were logged during the incident.
Fibreco provides bulk handling services for wood pellet firms and agricultural producers in British Columbia. The company exports wood biomass products to Asia and Europe.
