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.
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.
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.
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.
Explore Rubb’s patented Thermohall® insulated cladding system, which delivers many cost effective and eco-friendly benefits. Thermohall® fabric can be used to clad warehouses to storage and maintain wind turbine blades. Insulation can be supplied in thicknesses from 50mm to 200mm providing the best cost saving thermal solution.
