Silage clamp

Poundfield Precast of Ipswich in Suffolk, the UK’s leading designer and manufacturer of precast concrete retaining walls, has recently supplied and installed 140 of its 3 m high, reinforced concrete L-Blocs to form a large silage clamp for one of the largest growers of brassicas in the UK.

This silage clamp will help feed a 1.4 MW on-site biogas plant designed to make the grower 100% self-sufficient in green electricity, as well as providing heating, refrigeration and fertiliser.

Poundfield has previously installed nearly 900 of its 5 m high Shuttabloc units on the same site to form storage retaining walls capable of withstanding significant impacts and loads and the success of this initial contract led to a further order.

The new L-Bloc products, which are designed to accommodate loading from either side, are bolted down to a concrete base and their unique tongue and groove construction makes them easy to install and prevents any misalignment between sections.

In addition to its L-Bloc and Shuttabloc products, Poundfield launched two new systems in 2014 called Taperbloc and BetalocXL wall units to enhance its existing range. These systems have been introduced as part of the company’s continuous objective to provide the UK farming industry with a range of cost effective solutions designed to meet its developing requirements for bulk material storage.
