Project Overview – Anaerobic Digestor
Spanwright were pleased to contribute to a number of large renewable energy production facilities through the supply of one of our ventilated flooring solutions. The use of an anaerobic digestor has become an increasingly popular method of providing sustainable energy and heat to local facilities and also the national grid. By processing food waste, livestock manure and slurries vast amounts of biogas, energy and heat can be generated.
These facilities require a highly durable concrete and heavy load bearing capacity. Spanwright’s design and production teams delivered a slatted floor solution that incorporates a sulphate resisting cement to cater for the aggressive environment. The 1200mm wide units were fitted swiftly before placing a metal mesh and lightweight expanded clay aggregate down as bedding/media.
The finished floor provided the perfect combination of strength and ventilation.
