Carbon8 Avonmouth Silo Pod & MP Structure

Wright Engineering won the contract to design, manufacture and install Carbon8 Avonmouth plant 2. The plant uses a process known as Accelerated Carbonation Technology (ACT) to manufacture a high quality lightweight aggregate.
Joe McEwan was the design draughtsman for the contract, who worked with a project manager to lay out and detail structures within the plant. The first structure was a silo pod, which included 9-off silos, support structure, access ladders and platforms plus full piping system all done using AutoCAD and Tekla Structure software. Material lists were supplied to the works were possible and CNC files to aid the manufacturing process. The total structure weight was approx 150 tonnes. (See Figure 1 to 4).
Another structure was located inside the main plant building and was designed to support/gain access to the plants mixers and screw conveyors. The mixer plant (MP) structure has 3 fully handrailied floors, that are decked out with open mesh flooring and access ladders and stairs gaining access between floors. The structure was part-layed out in AutoCAD before Joe McEwan transferred it into Tekla to finish off the detailed design. After 3D modeling the steelwork, detail drawings, material lists and CNC files were generated for manufacture. The total structure weight was approx 43 tonnes excluding flooring. (See Figure 5 to 8).
