Ozinga Port of Palm Beach project summary available now

The project summary documenting Dome Technology’s project for Ozinga in Riviera Beach, Florida, USA, is available now.

The 50,000-metric-ton DomeSilo is located north of Miami and has a multi-colored airform, low-profile dome roof, and parapet wall. The structure’s custom appearance resulted from a cooperative effort between Ozinga, Dome Technology, the port of Palm Beach, and the City of Riviera Beach to enhance the visual landscape of the area and complement the marine environment. According to Ozinga vice president of strategic development Greg Vander Velde, Dome Technology was integral in bringing the design to life.

Innovation extended beyond the exterior design. For conveyance, the DomeSilo required 1,650 feet of 20-inch piping from the ship unloader and into the dome. The piping configuration included angles, making mechanical conveyance impossible. Dome Technology worked with Bruks Siwertell and FLSmidth to develop a new concept in ship unloading that combines a Siwertell ship unloader with FLS pneumatic transport that can easily move product in this configuration. This model is now being marketed to others in the bulk industry with similar conveyance requirements.
