New tube type conveyor system installed at Ferrybridge

In October 2007, Lentjes UK awarded Wright Brothers the contract to install the Limestone and Gypsum Handling Conveyors for the Fluidised Gas Desulphurisation Installation at Ferrybridge Power station.

The contract required us to install the free issue pipe conveyors that take the limestone from the rail unloading station into the power station, and the gypsum from the power station to the new Lafarge Plasterboard factory.

The conveyors are 361 metres long (Limestone) and 430 metres long (Gypsum).

We installed the conveyors on an extremely congested site, alongside and over railway lines, roadways and buildings without any incidents or accidents, over a 7 month period. Our site management team worked with client management to ensure a smooth installation, integrating our needs and those of the many other contractors on site.


The installation necessitated many large crane lifts, the largest being a tandem lift for the Limestone conveyor head end. Wright Brothers staff planned and executed the lift employing 500t and 450t capacity cranes to lift the 30t head end structure and land it on top of a silo 40m in height. Our site teams are fully qualified as appointed persons, banks men and slingers, enabling us to plan and supervise our own lifts without the need for contract lifts by crane operating companies.


Our client was so pleased with our performance at Ferrybridge that we were invited to tender for the equivalent installations at Fiddlers Ferry and Rugeley Power stations. Wright Brothers won these contracts and we are now installing the conveyor systems at both these sites.



For the past 5 years, Wright Engineering has been providing the UK Power Industry with a variety of services. Our company has brought our materials handling expertise and our multi-skilled site installation personnel to work on a number of high profile projects at Power Station sites. We have worked at the following Power stations: • Ferrybridge • West Burton
