MC&I designed, manufactured and installed the RIDGLOK® Vertical Standing Seam Insulated Panel System at a power plant located in Plainfield, CT.
The biomass energy bolted storage tank was a 44.56 diameter x 49.69 high bolted tank with a double stringer spiral staircase. The storage tank insulation project was completed on May 23, 2013.Details of the Plainfield Renewable Energy project can be read about by clicking on this link:
“The plant will generate electricity through the use of wood that is mainly derived from construction and demolition waste that would otherwise be placed in landfills. The plant will generate enough clean electricity to provide for about 40,000 households. It will also provide about 15% of the amount of renewable energy that the State of Connecticut is required under current rules to produce.” (http://www.enovaenergygroup.com/projects-plainfield.html)
The RIDGLOK® Vertical Standing Seam Insulated Panel Systemconsisted of 0.024 stucco-embossed aluminum metal jacketing, in fawn, laminated to 2″ thick of polyisocyanurate insulation board. R-value of 13.1, using a straight panel roof system.
RIDGLOK® Vertical Standing Seam Insulated Panel Systems REDUCE temperature difference to provide a THERMAL barrier between the external temperatures and the internal tank contents. Insulation of storage tanks REDUCES routine maintenance and PREVENTS energy waste while LOWERING fuel costs.
