The importance of carrying out bearing and expansion joint inspections by proficient and competent engineers who understand their functionality can often be key to maximising a structure’s lifespan and avoiding major, unexpected, emergency repair costs.
USL Ekspan have carried out a number of projects for swing bridges and foot bridges. From design, fabrication of all structural components, to trial erection and final installation. Details of these type of bridge installations can be supplied on request.
The High Head Pipeline supported on plinths, approximately 6 km in length, supplies water to the power station enabling the turbines to generate electricity.
The works on this contract, carried out over a period of 6 months, included design, manufacture and installation of:
- 2 no new pipe sections complete with internal expansion joints
- 6 no pipe bearing spools
- 4 no pipe bearing plinths
Working to critical design criteria and ensuring all stages of installation had prior signed approval made planning key for this project’s timely and successful completion.
A very well executed project even with the challenges of the location’s remote and harsh environment!
