Aggregate Industries has supplied the ready-mixed concrete specification for the piling foundations of a large power plant at Peterborough power station.
The company’s ability to provide a consistent supply in a timely manner, all under a particular set of logistical restrictions meant they were the obvious choice for engineering specialists Van Elle to award the contract to.
Simon Wycherley, general manager at Aggregate Industries, said: “The power environment is notoriously complex and the task here was by no means a simple one. On the logistical front we were met with many challenges, including the fact that the plant was heavily secured and had a set of rigorous requirements, particularly in terms of delivery openings.
“As such, it was very important for us to take a partnering approach, working with Van Elle in advance to ensure a robust plan of action which would negate any disruption on site.”
The ready-mixed concrete provides reassurance to customers that the concrete produced is to the highest standards and does not contain ingredients that could affect the durability of the concrete or corrode reinforcements.
Sean Holland, senior project engineer from Van Elle said: “We were delighted to work with Aggregate Industries on the Peterborough power plant project. The requirements of the job called for a high degree of partnership between the two teams to deliver the work on time.
“As expected, we received an excellent level of commitment and communication from the team on site, which meant everything ran smoothly and to the agreed timings, allowing us to complete the first stage of construction.”
