Knostrop Sludge Treatment Facility slab-mounted BioSphere

Date posted: 26 July 2018
Posted in: Uncategorized

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 X Stage at All Points East Festival, London

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”.

Measuring just 50 cubic metres and standing around 4m tall, the double-skinned slab-mount Biosphere was awarded to us by our North American licensee and manufactured in-house by our Manufacturing division before being carefully packed and crated for export.

Winter is coming again, so up goes the tennis dome.

It seems like only yesterday when spring had sprung and we were called in to deflate the Coolhurst dome ready for summer. Time flies like an arrow though and winter is almost upon us, so it’s that time of year again to give comfort and protection to the hardy cold-weather players. This time the dome is covering two of the club’s new clay courts rather than the hard surfaces of previous years.

This aerial view of Cardiff Docks takes in three structures from two separate projects, designed and project managed by our Biogas team and fabricated by our Manufacturing arm.

The projects are two 2,000m3 slab-mounted BioSpheres for Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water at their Cardiff sludge treatment centre on the far left, and a 32m diameter anaerobic digester membrane BioSphere roof for the Cardiff Food Waste AD plant in the lower centre. We like to think that both of these successful projects enhance the Cardiff scene..!

91034-PM-COR-00002 – Testimonial

On a recent wastewater treatment plant digester lid replacement project, Eneraque utilised the membrane digester lids, fan blower assemblies and pipework supplied by AJ Tensile Fabrications.
AJ Tensile became the obvious choice of fabrication partner to deliver this project with for our gas holder needs early in the scoping stage of the project, providing competitive pricing, industry experience, helpful advice and backed up by a respected product.
I am happy to say that Richard, Raul, Rafael and the team at AJ Tensile satisfied our expectations, meeting their project commitments and delivering prompt service when we had installation or design queries surrounding the product. Eneraque have been able to proudly deliver, install and commission a ground-breaking Australian installation that the end client and builder have been impressed with, utilising AJ Tensile manufactured products.
