TALL STRUCTURES Case Study
Dome structure in Guadalupe Island
Design and Construction of a 30m Dome
On the island of Guadalupe, Albioma operates the Le Moule thermal biomass plant which generates 31% of the electricity available on the island. In their effort to improve the plant's capabilities, they decided that building a dome was the best option for storing and preserving wood pellets, so they hired DOMINION to take over the project.
DOMINION is an expert in industrial structures. The dome technology is the most efficient one for the storage and preservation of sensitive bulk materials.
In this case, a 19,990 m³, 32m high and 35m diameter reinforced concrete dome was designed and built. The work included all the engineering, civil works, supply and mechanical assembly services.
Once completed, the advanced mechanical and pneumatic system that incorporates the dome allows a pellet storage ratio of 390 t/h and a delivery rate of 325 t/h, greatly improving the previous capacity of the plant.
