Discharging grain, Belfast harbour - July 2018(1)
Discharging grain, from the bulk carrier “Torrent” (2010/185 metres/30,890 dwt) to lorries at the Stormont Wharf - part of a cargo from Montreal. The most recent statistics I can find are in the harbour’s annual report for 2015 which shows grain exports of just under 4 million tonnes.

Stormont Wharf, Belfast
Wharf at the Victoria Channel, Belfast docks. The wharf was constructed 1956-62 by Charles Brand & Son, to provide a total lineal quayage of 580 metres; this was further extended by an additional 250 metres which was completed in 2009. Stormont Wharf is now one of the longest deep water quays in Ireland.
