Innovative Potato storage solutions

Spantech provides an innovative complete end-to-end storage system using its patented construction system to maximum effect. The result is a very economical whole of life solution that can be constructed quickly, even in remote areas.

Highly Efficient Potato Storage with Minimal Shrinkage and Loss

The Spantech Potato Store features a highly efficient central storage space, superior insulation and a fully automated/energy-efficient climate control system.

A Spantech Potato Storage Facility will store potatoes at premium quality with minimal shrinkage or degradation for up to nine months.

The buildings are large enough to accommodate a variety of mechanical handling options.  Most customers use the mobile Spudnik Piler to load the buildings. 

Semi-trailers tip directly into the Spudnik hopper with ample height provided along the central zone of the building. Unloading the building is just as efficient. Customers use the Spudnik Scooper, front-end-loaders and/or Bobcats.

The stores are ideally suited for processing plants or on-farm storage for bulk growers and co-operatives.
