For over 25 years, Chepstow Plant International have been the main incumbent and contract supply partner for the UK’s largest coal power station. Initially, this collaboration began with just a selection of loading shovels which only partially met Drax’s material handling requirements. As time progressed, both companies forged a synergistic partnership, resulting in the present situation, whereby Chepstow Plant International provide all the necessary equipment for Drax’s material handling requirements.
Some of the work Chepstow Plant International provides is:
Naturally, this contract is a high-dependency application, as the power station operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. In order to be able to meet demand, Chepstow Plant International has invested in 4 x Caterpillar 657G scrapers and Caterpillar D8 and D9 bulldozers for the control of PFA stocks. Furthermore, to ensure demand can be met, Chepstow Plant International have a resident team of maintenance fitters to ensure the “Up-Time” is maximised and only take machines out of operation at scheduled intervals.
