Ahrens designed and constructed this new storage facility in Port Adelaide for client Natrio – a global company specialising in the import and distribution of high volume dry chemicals, efficient logistics and supply chain solutions.

Work involved the construction of a 4,500m2 bulk storage facility for the storage of up to 24,000 tonnes of soda ash – an essential raw material used in the manufacturing of glass, detergents, chemicals and other industrial uses.

The natural fine powder is imported from America by ship to Australia where it needs to be stored until it can be distributed to customers as needed. Additional scope of works included allowances for bulk storage trucks to drive in and unload the soda ash, plus conveyor systems and a hopper for the input and output of the product.
