Biomass project on schedule for Italian firm
AJE is delighted to be working with SPIG an Italian, global turn-key cooling systems supplier.
The contract is to install an air cooled condenser unit for a new biomass project in Boston, Lincolnshire being handled by construction company Galliford Try.
Being overseen by project manager Gary Moyes, there is a structural and mechanical team working on the project.
The three man structural team’s experience is essential in ensuring the system is built to SPIG’s exacting standards.
They have been working on the main frame work, windwalls, walkways, access ladders and stairs and all attached support steel.
Whilst the three man mechanical team are taking care of all motors, driveshafts, fan units and pipework.
One of the largest parts of the mechanical scope is the installation of 1.2m steel duct sections, which carry the steam from the turbine building and introduce it to the ACC unit, which then turns it back into water to be recycled through the plant.
Gary said: “The teams are performing brilliantly and we are managing the scale, logistics and remote management such a scope presents very well so far. The Galliford Try site has a large number of contractors from civils through to process engineers all active at the same time and the sheer volume of traffic, both plant and human, requires a strict and closely monitored approach to ensure we are performing as safely and efficiently as possible.
“Our designated crane sub-contractor Central Cranes in Hull have been invaluable in this process, providing a professional, safe and high quality service which has enabled us to install a considerable amount of steel within the given schedule.
“As we approach the second phase, where site welding will be the main aspect, we are confident we can continue to deliver the same high level of work achieved so far.”
