Steelworks

Chepstow Plant International has extensive experience operating at two of the country’s leading steelwork projects in England over the last decade. Both contracts were high-dependency operations running 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. To ensure the company could meet the client’s required availability, significant investment was made into 50-70 tonne loading shovels and 40T rigid dumptrucks, highly equipped with specialised hot-work specifications.

Both steelworks contracts involve handling hot steel slag, granulate and pelite of approximately 1.3 million tonnes per annum. The hot steel slag (waste product from steel manufacture) has to be extracted from holding pits, loaded onto trucks and carried to stocking areas. This work involves meeting strict health and safety requirements due to the product having a ambient temperature in excess of 500 degrees C.
