Sileage and Green Power project in Nottingham
One of the latest projects added to the JMS portfolio is the design of 5m high sileage clamp walls and associated drainage system for the sileage store extension at Severn Trent’s Green Power Stoke Bardolph Crop AD Facility near Nottingham.
The project, commissioned by MHBS Ltd, has combined engineering skills (allowing for the height and size of the facility) alongside environmental considerations. Sileage run off is considered a hazardous material but ensuring that the runoff is properly managed, contained, and collected plays a valuable part in the generation of green power on site.
To meet all the criteria particular attention needed to be paid to the construction and detailing of the walls and JMS worked with Reading Agricultural Consultants to ensure the design and details complied with the relevant SSAFO (Silage, Slurry and Agricultural Fuel Oil) regulations.
Construction is well under way and the first concrete pour for the wall sections was recently carried out.
