According the operator’s website LinkExternal link “West Twin Silos is one of the largest grain silos in Europe. Combined with the West Twin Flat Store and Stormont Store, the store capacity is over 150,000 tonnes of grains and NGFIs.” The taller one (left) probably counts as the second most prominent feature of the Belfast Harbour estate after J3575 : The most famous cranes in Belfast. “NGFI” means "non-grain feed ingredients".
