Construction 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 ahead of schedule and on budget.
