Biomass power plant, Dumfries and Galloway UK

Project facts

Description Biomass power plant, Dumfries and Galloway
Client E.ON UK
Challenge High loads and sloping concrete walls

Hünnebeck (formerly Harsco Infrastructure) was selected as specialist formwork and falsework supplier for E.ON UK’s £90m biomass power station at Stevens Croft, near Lockerbie, one of the largest of its type in the UK.
The building incorporates complex concrete structures including a large concrete fuel pellet hopper with sloping concrete walls as well as tunnels and conventional columns and beams.  Working with the main contractor, we designed a solution using MkII steel soldiers and aluminium beams to create and support the sloping wall formwork whilst a series of mobile gantries were designed for the tunnel roof slabs and the larger beams.  These allowed easy striking and relocation to the next poor position.
