A renewable energy project containing an anaerobic digestion facility - which transforms farm and food waste into energy - was constructed at Ebbsfleet Farm in Ramsgate, Kent.
The organic waste is stored in sealed tanks inside the unit where naturally occurring organisms release a biogas which is used to generate energy. The storage buildings required a strong and durable building skin.
The unit was constructed using 4000 square metres of Cemsix corrugated sheeting in natural grey from Cembrit, installed by Robinson Structures Ltd.
Cemsix was the ideal solution as it not affected by destructive fungi, vermin or insects, so will not rot or decay during the lifetime of the building.
“Cemsix was the ideal material for this project,” commented Edward Gregory, Sales Director at Robinsons. “It is strong, requires no maintenance and is cost effective. It is also extremely easy to install, so allowed us to carry out the work in a quick and efficient manner.”
Incorporating the latest technological advances, Cemsix allows designers to clad agricultural or industrial buildings in a Class 0 fire rated, rust and rot-proof material that will last for decades. Manufactured using Portland cement, together with a formulation of superior blended synthetic and cellulose fibres and reinforced with strengthening strips and available with superior colouration systems, Cemsix is produced to the highest European standard.
