The challenge

The client required a fast-track demolition, design and tank rebuild at their Lancashire site, to enhance the integrity of their plant and avoid any plant downtime.

The solution

Altrad Motherwell Bridge (MB) adopted a collaborative solution for the project which encompassed a joint EDF and Altrad MB engineering team, who were familiar with the technical requirements, the power station requirements and the local environment. Altrad MB’s tank specialists worked alongside their engineers onsite to complete the tank rebuild project.

The benefits

  • Project completed with no lost time accidents or incidents
  • The execution model was produced to enable it’s transfer to other EDF site tanks
  • A collaborative engineering approach realised significant benefits to the schedule and out turn cost
