Project details

‘Getreidesammelstelle und Futtermühle Thalheim’, in short G.S.S, has allocated an unique project to Wirtech. TSC has received an order to supply square silos in the North of Switzerland. The silo, consisting of 12 bins of each 100 m3, has been built on top of a train platform. By building square these special conditions enable G.S.S. to easily load the grain in the trains directly from the 12 different bins. Could it be more efficient?

The project for G.S.S. was a bit unusual but that made it a nice challange for us. The construction is built over the train tracks. The large cells had the outload on one side of the bins. This in order to load the trains directly from the silo into the bulk wagon. Many elements that we hade to take into account in the design and during assembly. At the end it is great to see that the flexibility of our silosystem is a huge added value and the end user is very satisfied with the result.

Procedure The regulations of the industry, the properties of the material, the geographical conditions of the construction site, the weather conditions in the region… we leave nothing to chance. We therefore work according to the TSC roadmap. This way, we work efficiently and do not overlook any detail. A solid approach for a solid result.

Customized silo in 7 steps
  • In the first step, we discuss the requirements, capacity needs, external conditions and preconditions. What challenges should we take into account. Result: a programme of requirements; our basis.
  • Our concrete advice for fulfilling the need. A construction concept, with a tailor-made proposal according to the programme of requirements, complete with a competitive offer and time schedule. Result: The start of our further cooperation.
  • Wind pressure, snow load, internal weight, regulations, process flow and other important starting points. Our designers make their calculations with these facts in mind. Result: a reliable construction calculation.
  • The new silo plant is now being designed down to the smallest detail and worked out in workshop drawings. All details are discussed together. Resulr: After your approval, we will start production.
  • Reliability is our most important pillar. Our construction planning is therefore well thought out. We take into account the transport route and its obstacles, the (often challenging) situation at the construction site and the local capacity. Result: final planning with delivery date.
  • Led by a TSC supervisor, our experienced assembly team gets to work. We keep in regular contact about the progress in the meantime. With knowledge of local regulations and the right permits, we work safely and competently. Result: A carefully constructed new silo ready for use!
  • Every completion is a moment of celebration. We are happy to evaluate the project together. Of course, because we want to see our work in action, but also to learn from practical experience and fine-tune details where necessary. Result: a long-term partnership.
