E-Betoonelement unit of agricultural products CABRO will install several Aconsilo™ silos this summer, which were introduced this spring at the rural fair Maamess, which resumed after a two-year hiatus.
Kaido Kindel, project manager of E-Betonelement's CABRO unit: "This summer, my team will build several Aconsilo™ silos, one of which, for example, is the Kärla silo in Saaremaa and the other is the Viru-Jaagup silo in Lääne-Virumaa.
The silos will be made of high-quality, weather-resistant concrete with granite rubble, which ensures their long service life. The soon to be compeleted silos also allow farmers to easily increase the storage by adding sections to the building when the volumes increase. It is also worth noting the well-thought-out solution of the silos - we make the floors of the silo sections with a 0.5% slope, so that the silage juices flow towards the collection chute. Of course, silos also meet all EU environmental requirements.
We make Aconsilo™ silos 3 m wide and 3 m, 3.4 m or 4 m high and with a 140 mm thick floor plate.
Our team builds silos as a complete solution, i.e., the customer will gets all the necessary work from one contractor, from preparing the conceptual design drawings to building the storage. The work includes consultation, technical design of the silo, preparation of the construction site, installation, work on the floor plate, construction of the silage juice collection system and covering the walls of the silo with a protective layer.
Thanks to the extensive experience of the CABRO team and the functioning Aconsilo™ solution, it is a safe investment that will also serve the next generation."

BIMsummit Estonia, Estonia’s largest conference focusing on BIM and digital construction, will take place for the fifth time on 7-8 September at the Club of Different Rooms. The first day of the conference focuses on INFRA construction and the second day on BUILDING construction. Among the speakers of the second day, Morten Kaasik, head of the design technology platform of the Consolis Group, and Erik Prits, the development engineer of the Consolis Group, will have their presentations.
Erik Prits started out at E-Betoonelement as a designer in 2015. Since 2019, he has been involved in BIM development activities at Consolis Baltic Unit and as a product owner of Consolis Tekla environment at the group level. He is interested in combining data from different sources into a single comprehensive information model.
Morten Kaasik has worked at Consolis Group for 7 years in various roles, such as BIM modeler, project and team manager, product owner, and today he leads the development of the design technology platform. He is inspired by possibilities of changing patterns of thinking, as well as new technologies and making decisions based on data. He sees technology as an integral part of design and construction and believes that the field will be driven forward by both a change in mindset and the development of technology and software companies.
Morten Kaasik and Erik Prits will speak at the BIMsummit conference on the topic: How does design affect the productivity of the value chain?
In addition to Consolis specialists, BIMsummit will present several big names in the field, who will share their experiences on how to build smarter, more informed and more resource-efficient.
BIMsummit will present most current topics in the field and cover most interesting experience stories. The goal of the conference organizers is to inspire clients, general contractors and designers through the experience of practitioners.
