New JP Concrete silage clamp for Frogmary Green Farm’s AD plant
7 November 2018
JP Concrete has completed the supply and installation of high-quality pre-cast concrete panels for a silage clamp at a new farm-based AD/biogas plant in Somerset.
Working closely together with David Civil Engineering, who wanted panels with a very high finish for their customer, Sustainable Energy Generation, a total of 73 panels (316/250 AGRI L) have created a clamp that will house arable crops, growing grass, cereals, maize and fodder beet from the 320ha Frogmary Green Farm.
“The leachate from storing this type of material can be very detrimental to concrete”, said Shane David, Director at David Civil Engineering.
“We searched long and hard for a product that had a suitably hard surface and a very high standard of finish – with JP Concrete able to not only supply but install too. With cheaper panels you can get twists and misalignments where the surface isn’t sufficiently tight, but the panels from JP Concrete are first-class for an AD silage clamp”.
In creating 182.5m of wall to maximise the storage space for Sustainable Energy Generation, the pre-cast JP Concrete panels were resin-anchored for added stability to a reinforced concrete foundation poured by David Civil Engineering, who also then laid an asphalt surface over the top.
