Design of a 300-ton Potash Silo - Mosaic Belle Plaine

The existing 300-ton potash silo (containing standard product) was in need of either major repair or replacement. A decision was made to replace this silo and March provided an AACE Capital Cost Estimate and the Detailed Engineering Design for the direct replacement. As part of the design process, March completed a Finite Element Analysis (FEA) on the silo to determine deflections and stresses and ensure compliance with the Eurocode.
