MEMBER’S PRESS RELEASE: Ark Agriculture’s new range of IBC bunding solutions

This Summer ARK Agriculture, known for their expertise in silage clamp construction and silage clamp covering, are launching a new range of glass reinforced plastic (GRP) bunding and spill containment solutions for the UK anaerobic digestion and agricultural sectors.

The lightweight and durable range of bunds, sumps and spill trays are designed for the long term safe containment of IBCs, oil drums and agrochemical containers and are suitable for all oils and 95% of chemicals used on farms or anaerobic digestion plants.

The range can be supplied anywhere in the UK as standalone transportable units or custom fitted to existing areas like chemical stores and fuel tanks.

‘We are always looking to bring new products and services to the UK agricultural sector and this is a good example of the sort of technology that is more common in an industrial setting but could have several advantages for the farmer or AD operator’, Comments ARK Director Will Wilson.

Using the systems will ensure that liquids like oil and disinfectant leaking from steel drums or IBC’s will not enter water courses which could cause significant environmental pollution and hefty fines.

‘The great thing about GRP is it doesn’t rust or rot, it’s light weight and the units provide a very simple and cost effective solution to keeping you and your site safe and compliant’.

The full range extends to over 44 off the shelf products all of which are manufactured to the latest Environment Agency requirements and the range spans a single IBC spill container right up to a 12 IBC system or 2,000ltr spill tray with steel supports and anti-slip grating.

‘The systems are manufactured in the UK and we can offer a bespoke service as well- I don’t think there are any challenges that we couldn’t find a solution to,’ adds Mr Wilson.
