About Cimbria


Cimbria is one of the world’s leading companies within industrial processing, handling and storage of grain and seed, as well as animal feed, foodstuffs and other bulk products.

Cimbria Port Terminal Projects in Poland Increase Customer Efficiency and Capacity

In a quite classic business as grain and seed storage and handling, two keywords are pivotal: efficiency and capacity. With customized and flexible solutions, Cimbria supports their customers’ needs for reliability and high pace while increasing conveying and storage capacity including safe and gentle handling of crops to keep loss at a minimum. Cimbria is currently working on two large-capacity grain port terminal projects in Poland.

Time is essential in the port terminal business. So, the more efficient the transportation of raw materials such as grain, wheat, and barley, the better. As one of the strongest players in this field, Cimbria proactively approaches customers regarding complete port terminal solutions, where transportation and storage of grain and other crops are central elements in customer requests. This happens at the same time as transportation routes for grain and seed are being restructured due to changes in the world markets with increasing demands from places like the Black Sea region, Egypt, the Middle East, Kazakhstan, and Brazil.   

- We experience a global market pull for full scope supply of port terminal solutions. The demand for safe handling of bigger volumes of crops such as grain, wheat, and barley and high speed in loading and unloading as well as high storage capacity is an overall trend. Today we experience a high level of interest in heavy-duty handling equipment with capacities of 1,000-1,500 tons per hour, which is almost double of the average capacity request just a few years ago, explains Thomas Mohr, Sales Director Grain EME and Africa in Cimbria, and continues:

- Customers come to us because they prefer to deal with a one-stop-shop solution provider who can deliver turnkey projects on time. And with the most efficient and reliable storage and transportation solutions, we can ensure that the raw materials keep their value and quality throughout the value chain.

One of the important and growing markets for Cimbria is Poland and currently, Cimbria is working on two major port terminal projects there. One is for HES Gdynia Bulk Terminal in Port of Gdynia in the north-east of Poland. HES is expanding the current grain terminal intake capacity to 1,000 tons per hour and expanding with new flat storage with a capacity of 64,000 tons.

- Cimbria delivered equipment for the bulk terminal in Gdynia in 2016 and we are happy to have a satisfied customer returning for an expansion of the facility. A part of the new project is a customized intake system with weighing bridges significantly speeding up the unloading process, including also our Moduflex dust-free loading chutes an underground discharging system and movable and reversible conveyors ensuring a very flexible and adaptable solution. This ensures a larger capacity and a more efficient receiving and shipping of grain via Panama ships. A flat storage facility is future-proofing the warehouse, so it can be used for both grain and soya meal storage, says Mateusz Olejniczak, Manager Cluster Sales Lead in Cimbria Poland.

- The solution from Cimbria has been designed in close collaboration with us, and our long-term relationship helped to deliver the most effective solutions for our project. The new warehouse conveyors and handling equipment will contribute to a more efficient handling process. After completion, HES Gdynia will be able to offer a higher level of quality, safety, and capabilities, providing much-needed space for such a supply-constrained agricultural market, underpinning the terminal as the reliable logistic grain partner for our customers, says Sonia Florczuk, Commercial Director at HES Gdynia Bulk Terminal.

Another Polish project is for Szczecin Bulk Terminal in Stettin in the western part of Poland. Similar to the development in Gdynia, this project is also an extension of an existing plant, that Cimbria delivered handling equipment to in 2017. For the new project, Cimbria is delivering four silos with a total capacity of almost 28,000 tons and a ship-loading line with an intake capacity of 1,000 tons per hour.

- We are installing large amounts of extra storage capacity in a very narrow space, so we have put a lot of effort into the customization of the solution to match the specific needs and conditions. Furthermore, the silos are equipped with our intelligent temperature monitoring system that automatically manages and monitors grain temperatures 24/7 and warns in case of any hot spots. The system is an important part of maintaining a high quality of the grain and preventing product loss and downtime, says Mateusz Olejniczak.

- We are glad to be collaborating with Cimbria on this plant extension. Our fully automated silos and transhipment system allow us to offer both import and export handling to our customers, and with even more storage capacity we continue supporting the global food market by meeting the increased demand for secure and efficient storage and transportation of grain, says Rafal Rozanski, Terminal Manager at Szczecin Bulk Terminal.

Both port terminal projects in Gdynia and Stettin are ATEX-certified. The Gdynia project is expected to be completed by Q4, 2024, and the project in Stettin will be finalized by 2024-2025.

- The Polish projects both matches very well our overall aim to support global food security and food supply with a growing world population to feed, says Thomas Mohr.
