Correct storage is vital to maintaining the quality of our feedstocks on site. Here we can see Sal moving some solid product to allow us to utilise our space as well as keep the site tidy.
Apologies for the inconvenience caused last week by trying to access our site. The main entrance has been shut all week after we have had the track concrete stabilised. Last week we spent some time upgrading our other entrance so that everyone could still access the site.
We are very proud of how well maintained and clean we keep our site. Artur can be seen carrying out one of our weekly housekeeping duties on the road sweeper.
Routine maintenance is imperative on our AD Site to avoid any unnecessary downtime. Here is Kev changing a seal on our separator. This is a pivotal piece of equipment on the plant which uses a screw press to separate liquid and solid digestate. This is then utilised as a fertiliser on our farm.
Andy Bradwell from Tuff-Trax has been helping us tidy up one of the entrance tracks to the farm ready for closing the main entrance next week for some much needed repair work to some sections of the road. If you are coming to Rockscape there will be a diversion for 7 days from the 22nd November while we let the road repairs set. For information on our alternative entrance please call the office on 01724 781592
Here are a few photos from the first day of maize harvest back at the clamp on our AD site
Here is Alex in his T7.260 with the 12m Dalbo Cambridge rolls. He is rolling in the Hybrid Rye that you have seen Oliver and Jonny drilling in previous posts. Rolling is a very important job, it locks moisture into the soil surface to aid with the germination of the seed, pushes stones into the soil so they don’t damage the combine, creates an even surface to allow good coverage of pre-ems, crumbles those last clods in the seedbed etc.
The combine has been put away just in time for the cereal drill to start rolling. Here is Jonny in the Claas Xerion with the Grange toolbar and Vaderstad Rapid drilling hybrid rye for our AD plant.
