Brewing and Malting: Storage and bulkloading
A silo block for extra storage, as well as for loading trucks, which at the same time offered enough space so that the trucks still had room to turn. That, in short, was the task of Mälzerei Gebr. Steinbach in Zirndorf. This Bavarian malting plant needed more storage and loading capacity for their cleaned malt and barley, and only had limited space. This area also serves as the only access for all (freight) traffic to the courtyard of the malting plant. So it had to be kept open at all times. Also during construction.
Our solution to this challenge consisted of trusses of more than 9 metres wide. These guarantee free passage underneath and provide a constructive counterweight for the 12 silo cells. The trusses arrived at the construction site fully prepared. Thus, the substructure was in place in less than two days. The entire silo construction was finally completed in six weeks, right on schedule. On-site disruption was therefore kept to a minimum.
The customer had some concerns beforehand about the assembly and how this would affect daily operations. The customer was positively surprised when the entire substructure was in place in less than two days. The rest of the assembly also went smoothly. The silo was ready for use well before the set deadline. Good preparation is everything!
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.Questions? Contact us
