Eggborough Power Station insulation repairs
The works were carried out at Eggborough Power Station.
The client required access to the furnace vents which were approximately 24ft x 20ft box section.
The works involved repairing the insulation from the underside of several of the vents.
The work area was 80ft above an access roadway.
The client was not keen to block the access roadway which would have been required should scaffolding have been used.
The WEB Deck™ was installed with no obstruction to the access road either during the rig and de-rig.
If this had been scaffolded then the access road would have been blocked for the duration of the erection, the works and the dismantle. Given how long the scaffold would have taken this would have had a major impact on the daily operations on the site.
The insulation repairs were carried out quickly due to the open working platform provided by the WEB Deck™.
System scaffold would have taken 86 man/days to erect and dismantle.
The WEB Deck™ was rigged in 18 man/days to rig and de-rig.
The result was an 80% time saving
The WEB Deck™ was a best fit solution for this work scope offering significant time savings.
