Super size tank covers

Posted: Tuesday 25th March 2008

Specialist GRP cover designer AMi Designs continues to expand their business with a range of new projects confirmed at different sites. One recent example is at the Knostrop waste water treatment plant, a Yorkshire Water facility situated in Leeds where AMi have been appointed to design and supply five tank covers.

Among the challenges AMi had to overcome with the Knostrop project, was to design two large, self-supporting GRP covers measuring 20.5 metres in diameter and fitted to concrete tanks 16 metres high. Also, another ‘local’ issue which AMi had to contend with along with their client, were the limitations of very restricted space on-site which complicated the assembly process.

AMi Designs have completed other tank covers as part of the Knostrop project including two very large covers measuring 25.5 metres in diameter, and these are claimed to be the largest self-supporting covers of their type. AMi Director and qualified engineer Darren Bishop who is leading the project commented, “The Knostrop contract, which is valued at £220,000, is the latest in a number of new projects we are involved in and underlines our specialist engineering design skills inGRPcover design which have been developed over many years and numerous projects.
