PROJECT

The Future: Waste-to-Energy plant at Devonport Docks near Plymouth

MVV Environment is building a new Waste-to-Energy plant at Devonport Docks near Plymouth. The facility will transform 240,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste into energy which will provide power to homes in the city of Plymouth when it is completed.

This will have a huge impact on the local economy and bring substantial environmental benefits with it: The facility will divert household waste from landfill each year. The site is split, with the turbine hall on the north side and the waste bunker and tipping halls to the south.

Leada Acrow worked closely with Kier and Construction Services South West (CSSW), contributing designs for the large-scale formwork and falsework structures and providing equipment hire from an extensive product range. This included heavy-duty Mammut wall formwork, MEVA KLK 230 climbing formwork, Co-Planar and MEP falsework plus Soliders, Super A-Beams and support frames STB 450 from Leada Acrow service centres in Tavistock, Cardiff and Colnbrook. Leada Acrow’s service continued in the form of site visits, providing advice throughout the construction process.

    South Canal Bridge, Ontario: With no crane possible at busy Hwy 400, MevaLite handles the job with ease

    One of Ontario’s busiest transportation corridors, Highway 400, began a major expansion project through Kings Township in late 2016. This $79.3 million dollar (CAD) project includes the widening of the highway from three to six lanes in each direction for a two mile stretch and also entails safer on and off ramps, the expansion and realignment of culverts, and the replacement of two bridges − one of them the South Canal Bridge.
