The operator of a biogas plant was looking for three new tanks for the facility. They were to be used as a beet store, a fermenter and final storage tank. The tank for final storage needed to have a volume of 5,000 m³.
The customer opted for three stainless steel tanks from Börger. The customer was particularly impressed with all the options available for Börger stainless steel tanks. The customer could select the perfect solution for his requirements from the wide range of different covers. The plan is to extend the beet tank from the current storage capacity of 1,895 m³ up to 2,527 m³ in 2015.
The stability of the stainless steel tank and the option of dismantling it to assemble in another location gave the operator of the biogas plant financial security should the guaranteed payments for power feed into the power under the terms of the German Renewable Energy Act end after 20 years.
