Nottinghamshire-based ECS Engineering Services has recently completed the manufacture of 49 steel duct cradles destined for the main reactor building at a UK nuclear power plant.
Each of the duct cradles required fabrication to the highest standards, with ECS engineers delivering all of them within six months.
A channel-framed structure (www.ecsengineeringservices.com
) was mated with plate-work supports to increase the cradles’ strength, ensuring that they could easily accommodate the sizeable stainless-steel ducts which would be installed on top of them at the facility.
Each cradle took an average of 80hr to complete.
With the installation of ductwork at the nuclear power plant dependent on the completion of the cradles, it was imperative that they were ready on time.
