INDUSTRY FEATURE – Agriculture & Diversification

Agriculture & Diversification

We have seen many of our farming clients seeking diversification from the traditional farming activities and income. This includes converting redundant farm buildings into holiday accommodation or building farm shops to sell their own produce.

There has also been a growing trend in Renewable Energy diversification as technology, economics and environmental issues drive the need for alternative energy generation. Harnessing energy from a range of difference sources – one form is Anaerobic Digestion; the controlled breakdown of waste matter to produce combustible Biogas and nutrient rich organic by-products. Another is by utilising the sun with the installation of solar parks. This offers a cost-effective way to maximise yield from low grade agricultural land.

Case Study: Bespoke concrete bases used to support solar panels 

Poundfield Bespoke division manufactured a number of Precast Concrete units to support an array of large solar panels. The order was placed by Travis Perkins, on behalf of Lark Energy – a Lincolnshire based provider of commercial and utility scale energy systems with a particular expertise in large solar farms and other renewable energy solutions.

The Precast Concrete blocks were used on a new Solar Farm site near Wellingborough where 18,000 PV panels, each rated at 260 watt were installed.
