Constructing the concrete pedestal to house the main turbine for this new geothermal power station required propping up to 14m in height to support a total weight of 750t. 650t was wet concrete, including seven beams up to 2m deep deposited in a single pour over twelve hours.
Hugh Laity of Power Scaffold and Access reported that the contractors, Hawkins/Sumitomo JV, were impressed by the 2.5m wide cantilevered working platforms and they "just loved" the stair access.
Thank you to Hugh and Jono Laity of Power Scaffold and Access Ltd for the use of these photos.
