Major 3500 Tandem Tanker
Major 3500 Tandem Tanker

AD Plant Waste Management – 3500 Tandem Axle AD Tanker

Client: Barfoot Farms, West Sussex, UK.

Farmed area:  2000ha (5000acres)
AD Plant: 1.1MW twin-tank MT Energie system fed predominatly with veg. packhouse waste running 2 x 20-cylinder 1500hp engines

Often the biggest headache for anyone running a biogas plant is in dealing with the digestate. With over 50million litres of liquid to deal with each year from a 2.3MW digester, Barfoot Farms in West Sussex has a very professional system in place to handle its slurry and needed reliable tankers to back up its operations.  Growing some 5000acres of vegetables, Barfoots were keen to make best use of the nutrient value of the digestate.

The work is handled by two Major 3500 gallon tankers with a 5.2m disc injector and a 10m Vogelsang dribble bar.  The dribble bar linkage on Major tankers is connected directly to the chassis, which puts less strain on the machine so it lasts longer. The tanker has a steering rear axle. It makes the tanker much more manoeuvrable and on concrete there’s no scuffing of tyres. Filling is by a Battioni vacuum pump with a drop down fill-arm. It makes loading a clean, two to three minute job.
