Biomass Energy Storage Facilities

Rubb Buildings Ltd manufactures custom built engineered biomass facilities for the renewable energy and biomass power sectors. Our facilities provide the ideal building solution for biomass material processing, bulk handling and storage.

Custom designed to store and process

Rubb UK has been a trusted supplier of building solutions for the energy market and other industrial sectors. Rubb has also been providing facilities to the renewable energy, alternative fuels and biomass power marketplace.

Rubb’s bioenergy storage structures can help clients facilitate coal to biomass conversion projects and provide customers with the ideal environment for the processing, handling and storage of bulk materials. Our technical team offers expertise and experience in the design, engineering and construction of large scale biomass building projects such as E.ON Power Station in Ironbridge.

Multiple Door Options

Rubb offers a variety of different door solutions. They can be selected and designed to suit all opening requirements. This flexibility ensures that our clients get the best option for their selected Rubb biomass energy facility type, depending on their operational needs.

Customisable Features

Biomass processing and storage buildings can accommodate all types of door, ventilation and other systems and safely support high loads imposed by overhead cranes, ceiling-mounted HVAC and fire-suppression systems, fall-protection equipment and other superimposed loads.

Flexible and Cost-Efficient Foundation Systems

Rubb biomass storage warehouses can accommodate many foundation options such as concrete up-stand, ballast weights, and ground anchors into an existing surface. Rubb co-ordination with the groundwork contractor is key for the client to reach the most cost effective solution.

Low Maintenance / Low Costs

Our high-quality membrane materials and post-production galvanized welded frames deliver durability over time, making the cost of maintaining Rubb biomass buildings more economical compared to conventional structures.

Energy-Efficient Roof Membranes

Translucent membranes allow natural daylight to illuminate the biomass processing space while the white roof surface reflects heat. Optional Thermohall® insulation minimises heat transfer, prevents condensation and virtually eliminates thermal bridging and air infiltration.

Rapid Construction, Installation and Relocation

Rubb biomass storage buildings can rapidly designed, manufactured and constructed due to module pre-fabrication. Rubb can provide site supervisors or fully dedicated construction teams to complete any custom project.

Reduced Time On-Site

Our established supply chain streamlines co-ordination of delivery and installation. Pre-fabricated elements and the ability to construct our buildings in a variety of weather conditions speeds up the construction process.

Comprehensive Long-Term Service

Rubb personnel are on hand to provide help and support, from initial contact to quotation, installation and beyond. Rubb’s commitment to customer service continues after project completion and forms the basis for long-term customer satisfaction.

    Biomass Storage Structure Types

    Rubb can provide custom designed building types in a variety of configurations and sizes to suit your biomass storage.

    Rubb BVR Structure

    BVR Structure

    The BVR features rectangular leg and roof box sections. This takes up less space and provides more overall internal clearance. This design is a popular choice for bulk storage buildings.

    Rubb BVE Structure type

    BVE Structure

    BVE structures feature lattice frame sidewalls and can be designed with single or multiple lattice roof pitches. Span widths start from 20m to 40m, by any length.

    Rubb BVC Structure Type

    BVC Structure

    The BVC is designed with a vertical column leg and a lattice frame roof. This structure type offers a large clear internal area. 40m to 100m width spans are available.

    Rubb BVL Structure Type

    BVL Structure

    The BVL has vertical lattice frame sidewalls and single or multiple lattice roof pitches per span. Large spans start from 40m to 100m in width, by any length.
