With decades of experience in the design, engineering and fabrication of biogas systems, AJ Tensile Biogas Systems Ltd has established an outstanding global reputation as an innovative, dependable partner, establishing long-standing relationships with our clients in all aspects of biogas control and distribution.
Our team of designers, engineers and project managers is headed up by Director of Engineering Richard Cherry, who brings over thirty years of anaerobic digestion (AD) technology experience, having designed, engineered, managed, installed and commissioned hundreds of AD systems throughout the world. A highly-respected consultant to the AD and wastewater treatment industries, Richard was previously Managing Director of a number of leading AD companies before setting up AJ Tensile Biogas Systems Ltd in association with AJ Tensile Manufacturing Ltd in 2013. Richard was also MD, founding director and co-owner of Vergas Ltd, for whom AJTM Ltd produced gasholder membranes.
Biogas systems are used to control the storage and distribution of biogas (generally 65% methane) generated by the anaerobic decomposition of organic waste. As such they are an increasingly important contributor to environmental protection by utilising renewable energies, reducing carbon footprints and minimising impact on our environment, and AD is rapidly becoming the technology of choice for organic waste treatment across the globe. AJ Tensile Biogas Systems has proved itself a highly skilled specifier and provider of biogas handling technology including membrane BioSphere vessels, covers, roofs, tank tops and associated hardware. With its own design, project management, installation and commissioning team fully integrated into the 3,200 sqm on-site production facility of AJ Tensile Manufacturing Ltd, AJ Tensile Biogas Systems Ltd offers outstanding service, unrivalled expertise and the efficiency and convenience of a complete turnkey solution for all of your membrane biogas project requirements. Over the years Richard and his team have been responsible for the successful completion of over 250 membrane gasholder and roof projects across the globe.

One of our recently-completed biogas projects at the £72m Knostrop Treatment Works, as viewed from the A1(M). There’s a Yorkshire Water article about the plant here: https://www.yorkshirewater.com/about-us/newsroom-media/knostrop-sludge-investment
Our Biogas and Manufacturing divisions are currently collaborating on a project for Vale Green Energy, a lagoon cover at Rotherdale Farm in Pershore, Worcestershire. The dimensions of the cover are 59.8m long by 35.8m wide, and capacity is 9,555 cubic metres. The membrane manufacturing process is currently ongoing with delivery and installation scheduled for the end of this month.
Mounted on a 3m concrete plinth, this 4,000 cubic metre BioSphere gasholder was recently installed by our installation crew at Knostrop Sludge Treatment Facility in Leeds for Yorkshire Water Services Ltd. With a base diameter of nealy 18m and a height of around 15.5m, this BioSphere is an imposing structure that requires expert installation techniques and takes around six hours to inflate once secured to the plinth. All production was performed in-house by AJ Tensile Manufacturing Ltd at our facility in Caldicot, with design, project management and installation performed by AJ Tensile Biogas Systems Ltd. Additional volumetric checks were performed on-site after inflation to confirm the accuracy of the level-checking laser by measuring discharged air using an anemometer.
The Special Projects division of A J Tensile Manufacturing Ltd recently completed a prestigious staging installation for one of our major clients. Consisting of two 60m arched trusses with an octagonal suspended roof over a raised stage, the structure was one of seven temporary staging installations for the All Points East Festival in Victoria Park, East London. Our fabric panels provided cover and backdrop for the lighting arrays built into the arches.
We had to work to a very tight schedule but our client was very pleased with the final result, saying “A J Tensile did it again, managing to deliver as always, despite the late information”.
