THE Brackley based temporary structure specialist is benefiting from the expanding renewable energy market as it starts work on storage facility in Sweden.
Robert Alvarev, sales director for De Boer, on the Buckingham Road Industrial Estate said a rapid rise in the world wide demand for cost effective energy sources had led to a shortage of suitable storage facilities.
This month they begun building an weather hall structure for Falu Energi and Vatten, a key player in the Swedish electricity and water industries.
Although temporary the 40,000 cubic metre structure, which will be used to store biomass pellets, will be capable of dealing with the harsh Scandinavian climate and could be in place for decades.
Mr Alvarez said clients were looking for flexible yet secure facilities which can be quickly put in place and added: “This has led to intense interest in semi-permanent accommodation, with structures such as De Boer’s offering robust solutions while potentially being in place in a fraction of the time it would take to erect a permanent storage facility.”
“In such challenging times the growth of biomass and other sources of renewable energy also offers a very real boost for the economy, providing the potential for both revenue and employment.”
