External Separation Firewalls For Live Biomass Plant, Barry

DNO Consulting Ltd


As recent changes have been made to the fire safety regulations required for energy plants across the UK, Stancold worked with DNO Consulting Ltd to carry out an external firewall installation in Barry.


Stancold’s strong technical expertise within internal fire-rated partitioning paired with DNO Consulting Ltd’s experience in the high voltage industry was key in being able to successfully develop the concept and design for this external firewall.

The structure was to sit between a generator and reactor, so in the unlikely event of a fire, it will act as a core barrier against the spread of flame.


Stancold installed Eurobond Mineral Fibre 125mm thick panels to form the partitions, complete with an externally treated finish to be able to withstand the outdoor elements. The team also completed fireboarding to the steelwork and overcladding in steel, offering maximum durability to the structure.

Health and safety was paramount during this project, as the client’s machinery on site remained operational. This was carefully planned and executed throughout by Stancold’s project management and installation team, ensuring a safe working environment. This project was completed on schedule and handed over to a satisfied end user.
