TALL STRUCTURES Case Study
Design & Construction of (2) FGD Silos
The scope of the design and construction contract included two concrete FGD silos on piled foundations and the linking services tower.
The gypsum silo was the larger at 42 meters high and 20 meters in diameter. Internally, there were two intermediate floors, one to accommodate the centrifuges and conveyor system, and the second formed a raised floor to allow lorries to pass the silo while loading. The limestone silo was 33 meters high with a 12 meter internal diameter.
