Sandown, Isle of Wight – replacement Biosphere gasholder

Our Biogas and Manufacturing divisions collaborated recently to complete a 975 cubic metre Biosphere gasholder at Sandown on the Isle of Wight for Southern Water and Barhale Trant Utilities LLP. This was to replace an existing unit that had come to the end of its long and happy life, and our new design offered improvements by having no gap between the inner and outer membranes.

The installation went smoothly despite adverse weather conditions where the whole site was blanketed in thick snow, and our installation crew worked closely with the client to ensure that delays were kept to a minimum. The gasholder went into full operational service only a week after the installation was completed.
