Big beams create energy plant for Welsh capital

Posted on by in News

nCardiffJUl13Barnshaw Section Benders, working in conjunction with ASD Westok, has supplied some of the deepest cellular beams ever requested to Fisher Engineering for a new energy from waste plant in Cardiff.

The largest curved cellular beams were 23m long and 1,594mm deep, formed from one of the biggest sections that Tata Steel produces, a 1,016 × 305 × 438kg UKB.

As well the curving for ASD Westok, Barnshaws has also been bending a number of bars direct for Fisher Engineering, which included a variety of sections and sizes ranging from 457mm deep beams, to 400mm deep rectangular hollow section (RHS).

Both cellular beams and sections took Barnshaws three to four months to complete and in total they weighed approximately 500t.
