A recent project saw DT Engineering NW appointed as contractor for the major replacement and repairs of sections of collapsed ducting for a major construction sector materials manufacturer in the region. Following major running schedules and demanding conditions, large sections of the factory extraction ducting were subjected to heavy corrosion and deterioration. Due to the size and magnitude of the ducting and the need to maintain as close to full production as possible, the project required us to manufacture large sections of the ducting for retro fitting into existing areas, as well as the on-site repairs and patch up work to other parts of the installation.
The project saw the business leading in the repairs of the sections working alongside site personnel and other contractors. Exploratory works during the project meant that the continuous repairs to brackets, modification of support stirrups and the manufacture, installation and specialist rigging were a must do for all of our team to allow continuity of the factory and its production.
The project is ongoing into the new year with projected works to allow for the ducting to be decommissioned in stages and larger repairs going ahead which will see the entire asset replaced. We are continuing to work with the client closely and undertake further observation and monitoring of the operational condition as well as planning for future repairs planned.
