The installation of pre-stressed Baywall panels, designed and manufactured by Whites Concrete, has created important new feedstock storage space for PH Bioenergy in Grantham.
The flat Baywall panels have combined to form new storage bunkers for PH Bioenergy, who utilise grass silage as well as cooked and uncooked potatoes for its AD feedstock.
"The upgrade of existing silage pits and various extensions created some unusual profiles and angles," said Rob Chorlton from PH Bioenergy, "but the measurements from Whites Concrete have been spot on."
He added: "In fact, the whole service we’ve received from Whites Concrete has been much more than just supplying the pre-cast panels.
"They have been very helpful throughout, including delivery, as well as assisting us with lifting equipment and also drawings during the early design stages to assist us in gaining approval from the Environment Agency."
Stephen Casey from Whites Concrete, said: "We understand that no two farm AD plants are the same and that for many farmers, getting an AD plant up and running with appropriate storage is no mean feat.
"We were very pleased to help Rob wherever we could and play our part in making the PH Bioenergy AD plant a very successful one."
