It's in the bag
Farming Monthly National|March 2021
7,000 cubic metre Albers Alligator Bag Tank with integral hydraulic stirrers and fill/empty pipes can be installed on almost any site.

To meet government environmental targets, it is likely that covering slurry will be a requirement in England from 2027. This will cause concern for some farmers who will need to seek new slurry storage. However, a flexible, scalable solution is already available in the UK that will keep slurry not just covered but entirely contained.

Dutch company Albers Alligator have been manufacturing bag tanks for more than 35 years. These tanks represent a cost-effective and flexible solution to contain slurry in small and large volumes. Bag tanks range in size from 200 cubic metres to 7,000 cubic metres and can be located on any soil type as only a shallow foundation is needed. The tanks have integral hydraulic or electric stirrers, fill/empty pipes and are selfventing so relatively little management or farmer involvement is needed.

John Tydeman from Tramspread who markets and installs Albers Alligator tanks in the UK comments: “These tanks are proving ever more popular. They are lower cost and easier to assemble than comparable slurry solutions on the market and often don’t require any planning permission. We expect to see interest rise as farmers react to the need to cover slurry by 2027. These bags can help a great many farmers adhere to the new legislation.”
