Case Study - Mixer Retrieval and Replacement

Location
Herefordshire
Plant Type
Agri Biogas plant
Scale
500kWe
Date
Summer 2020
Reason for activity:

Customer experiencing loss of mixing and consequent lack of gas production.

How we helped:

Birch Solutions were able to rapidly respond to the issue to install parts provided by the customer for their 3,500m digester. Work was coordinated with a neighbouring plant to minimise costs.

Elements of the work included:
  • Development of project plan and associated project and safety documentation
  • Safe de-commissioning for the digester prior to starting work
  • Peel back the roof to expose mixer
  • Contract lift of mixers
  • Installation of new mixers
  • Re-installation of double membrane bio-dome
  • Start up and re-commissioning support
  • Plant optimisation
  • Continued support provided
  • Service and maintenance
