Prado Silos has installed two silos of 8700 m³, each silo, for biomass storage for a 40 MWe 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 get an optimum storage of the biomass. The silos also have a vehicle access door with dimensions of 3.5 x 3.5 m. The discharge of the silos is carried out by 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 80 m² formed by explosion relief panels, according to 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.
