Galvanizing success at major power station

Posted on by in News

Worksop Galvanizing, part of the Wedge Galvanizing Group, has completed a major contract to galvanize more than 500t of structural steelwork for a new biomass fuel facility at the Drax power station in North Yorkshire.

Galvanized steelwork was specified by the designers for maximum anti-corrosion protection and longevity owing to the highly corrosive, damp atmosphere produced by storing the biomass materials.

“Drax is the largest coal-fired power station in the UK and this new biomass storage facility is a major step towards making its energy production cleaner and reducing its carbon emissions, so naturally we are delighted to have been involved in such an important project,” said Paul Robinson, Commercial Manager at Worksop Galvanizing.

Working on behalf of main contractor C Spencer, Worksop Galvanizing’s contract consisted of galvanizing structural beams up to 18m in length.
