Range of services for biogas facilities

The number of biogas plants has increased significantly in recent years. The trend for Germany is shown in the following diagram.


For this type of green power plants, the SKI engineering company can offer the following services:

  • Statics for fermenters and fermentation tank and its foundation slabs
  • Static calculations for various roof shapes (eg, air-inflated roof)
  • Detailed evidence (eg, for the manhole)
  • Numerical simulations
  • Design of stormwater retention basins

Our services

SKI Ingenieurges. mbH can offer the following services for the design of new tanks/containers to be constructed and the conversion of existing tanks systems:

  • Static calculations in the ultimate and serviceability limit states for tanks/containers incl. foundation and anchoring
  • Inventory and expert assessment of existing tanks/containers with regard to their conversion to energy storage facilities
  • Verifiable static calculation to increase the height of existing tanks/containers - Detailed analysis (e.g. for the manhole, Bob-Cat, nozzles, etc.)
  • Dynamic structural analyses (natural frequency analysis) for defined excitations (e.g. as a result of an agitator) - Verification in the load case: "earthquake" 
  • Pressure vessels (e.g. pressure-shock-resistant design, burst pressure)
  • Stability considerations of steel circular cylinder shells 
  • Expert opinions in the event of damage and emergencies
