Britain’s Steel Experts Build Bridges for Nepal’s Financial Growth

2017-01-06T14:31:50+00:00 May 21st, 2013|Categories: News|Tags: , , , , |

Sabha Kholanews01Slow growth in Nepal’s exports and difficulty moving home-grown agricultural products around the country to reduce dependence on imports are getting a boost from steel bridges that are designed and built in the UK.

Helped by £3 million of funding from the British government, through the Department for International Development’s (DFID) Rural Access Programme (RAP), REIDsteel of Christchurch, Dorset was appointed by local contractor Kalika of Khatmandu to construct a 120m steel span bridge to open up access between Khandbari and Chainpur and boost trade across the Sabha Khola river.

Sabha Kholanews02The bridge links Sankhuwasabha with the national road network and has the potential to transform the lives of 800,000 people – The river runs through the Arun Valley, one of the deepest in the world at 300-435 metres.

Without a bridge the people of the region faced extreme difficulties crossing from one side to the other. During the monsoon season boats would regularly capsize, putting lives and cargo in peril.

Building a bridge in such a remote region is easier said than done. Road access was little more than mud tracks in places and […]

1318931793Construction of TAG Energy Solutions new 6840m2 production facility on the north bank of the river Tees is now complete.

The facility is a state of the art, automated tubular production facility for the rolling & welding of large diameter tubulars, and the construction of foundations – monopiles, tripods, jackets and transition pieces – for the renewables and energy industries.

REIDsteel designed, fabricated and erected the ‘V’ braced tied portal frame which spans 40m x 171m, 18m to external eaves. As part of the contract REIDsteel also designed, fabricated and erected the doors, crane beams, insulated roof and single skin wall cladding.

The structure has been designed to integrate with TAG’s manufacturing process and subsequently incorporates 4 travelling overhead gantry cranes for the moving and lifting of large steel plates and tubular sections during fabrication.

Following fabrication, the large diameter tubes can be safely removed from the facility and transported out through REIDsteel’s electronically operated 20m wide x 14m high slab sliding hangar doors at the gable end.

Despite the challenges of the harshest winter for 31 years triggering near Artic conditions during the mainframe erection & cladding installation, REIDsteel completed the job […]
