Renewable Energy

Rubb can support the renewable energy sector by supplying custom designed facilities as a cost effective solution to support storage and processing of equipment and materials.

Renewable Energy Storage & Processing Facilities

Rubb designs, manufactures and constructs specialist fabric clad facilities for 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 sensitive 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.

Meanwhile Rubb fabric structures can also provide the ideal storage and protection solution for storage and maintenance operations relating to offshore renewable energy equipment.

Multiple Door Options

Rubb offers a variety of different door solutions. They can be selected and designed to suit renewable energy operations. This flexibility ensures that our clients get the best option for their selected custom Rubb facility.

Customisable Features

Renewable energy storage, processing and maintenance facilities 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.

Low Maintenance / Low Costs

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

High Quality Membrane

Energy-Efficient Roof Membranes

Translucent membranes allow natural daylight to illuminate the biomass and wind turbine blade storage 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 renewable energy warehouses can be rapidly designed, manufactured and constructed due to module pre-fabrication. Rubb can provide site supervisors or fully dedicated construction teams to complete any custom energy structure project.

WIND POWER

Rubb can custom design, manufacture and construct fabric buildings to support onshore and offshore wind power operations. Flexible fabric structure solutions can accommodate the storage and maintenance of wind turbine equipment and blades on land and on vessels at sea.

Renewable Energy Structure Types

Rubb can provide custom designed building types in a variety of configurations and sizes to suit your Renewable Energy operations.

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.
