Wright Engineering is now supporting the W2R Waste recycling Partnership of
Bovis Lend Lease, Minproc and Lancashire County Council in the installation of
two large Waste Recycling Facilities.
The sites for this multi billion pound project are at Leyland and Thornton on
brown field sites.
Wright Engineering have been conducting the installation of the waste
percolators at both sites. The percolators are the core to the waste process and
there are three units at each location. With a length of over 20 metres and an
internal diameter of over 5 metres, the installation has been a challenge.
The installation of the large shaft assembly (27t) to tight tolerances has
been successfully carried out to the six units.
In addition, Wright Engineering won the contract to supply all the connecting
chute work and plate work to both sites. This contract, which is an ex works
fabrication contract to supplied drawings, will have a value of close to £1m on
