Rapid build - design and manufacture of 2 silos for energy company

Spirotech’s experienced teams completed two new silos for a Hull-based energy company within record time by utilising every aspect of its sophisticated ‘rapid build’ program.

Structural design, detailed drawings, manufacture, delivery and installation all took place within 7 weeks from the date of order, thus ensuring a critical deadline for these high specification silos was in place in time.

Installation completed on time.

ATEX compliant

The 4.9m diameter x 16m tall carbon steel silos, one to store PAC (powdered activated carbon) and one to store hydrated lime, were finished in high quality category C4 long-lasting paint to counteract the coastal weather conditions at their final location. The PAC silo was also fitted with dust explosion relief panels as the PAC is potentially a dust explosion hazard and therefore needed to be ATEX compliant.

Ease of transportation, ease of installation

Each silo was built in 4 modular, flanged and bolted, sections for ease of transportation and to enable Spirotech’s installation team to construct on site, in under 1 week.

Russell Gadsby, Production Director of Spirotech-SRD Group, commented

Our ‘rapid build’ program enables us to turn around large projects to very tight schedules and we are delighted to have been able to fulfil our clients critical deadline.
