Albioma Reunion Island project summary available now

Dome Technology has completed a two DomeSilo project for independent renewable-energy provider Albioma in Reunion Island. Read the full project summary here.

Repeat customer Albioma contracted with Dome Technology to build two identical DomeSilos for storing wood pellets at its Bois-Rouge cogeneration unit on Reunion Island. “This is another impressive project for Albioma,” Dome Technology CEO Bradley Bateman said.

The design-build project also facilitates responsible energy usage and reduced greenhouse-gas emissions. Albioma leadership committed to fully abandon coal usage at their site; by the middle half of 2023, the power plant will operate completely on biomass.

The domes are 105 feet in diameter and 85.3 feet tall with a capacity of 9,500 cubic meters apiece. Pellets are stored and burned on site to produce electricity for the island. A Vibrafloor system was chosen for reclaim.
