Prado Silos completes two biomass storage silos in Spain
Prado Silos has installed two 8,700m³ silos for biomass storage as part of a 40 MW biomass power plant owned by Grupo Ence in Huelva. Prado Silos has developed this project through Sener engineering company.
The roofs of these silos have been designed with a special angle of 40º in order to achieve optimum storage of the biomass. The silos also have a vehicle access door with dimensions of 3.5 by 3.5m. The discharge of the silos is carried out with a vibrating floor mounted in a hopper at 25º of inclination.
In terms of regulations and safety, each silo has been designed in compliance with the European Regulation 2014/34/EU, “Regarding equipment and protection systems for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.” Each silo has a total venting area of 80m² formed by explosion relief panels, in accordance with European Standard EN 14491.
“We are very pleased to achieve this important milestone, which contributes to settle Prado Silos as a leading supplier for high demanding storage facilities,” says Javier Resano, commercial director at Prado Silos.
