Galvanized base structure for biomass fuel silos

Once again Premier Galvanizing are at the forefront of new technology and environmental innovations.

Premier Galvanizing were asked by a long standing client P & D, based in Hull, East Yorkshire to hot dip galvanize two new base structures for the brand new biomass silos at Royal Portbury Docks, Bristol.

With ever decreasing lead times available from their main contractor, P & D knew that the schedule of works was going to be difficult to achieve. In total over 120 tonne of steel was delivered to site in Bristol by Premier Galvanizing over a two week period, proving once again that distance is no barrier to Premier Galvanizing.

The base structures seen in the photograph support the silos which will be storing wood pellets imported from North and South America, the pellets will then be transported by rail to power stations throughout the country, reducing carbon emmisions in the electricity industry.

With lead time being so short on this project, it was essential that there was no issues preventing delivery to site. Prior to the work commencing on the project a meeting was held between Premier and P & D to discuss the schedule of works and the number of loads requiring delivering to Bristol, this pre planning was  one of the fundamental reason why the project went so well, with a schedule of works being available Premier Galvanizing were able even able to pre plan extra shifts at the weekend to satisfy the end client.
