In May 2015 Reidsteel entered into discussions with Interserve Construction Ltd concerning the design, supply and installation of a skewed and cambered 45m clear span, 2 lane vehicle Access Bridge, over the river Don in Rotherham.
The requirement for the Interserve bridge was to provide vehicle and pedestrian access to the new Templeborough Biomass Power plant, which when operational, will produce 41MW of green electricity for up to 78,000 homes.
Although there was already an access bridge to the site, the existing structure was deemed unsuitable for the delivery of many of the major parts needed during the construction of the Power Plant.
Furthermore, the existing bridge would not be able to provide service for the increased vehicular and pedestrian traffic once the plant becomes fully operational.
Due to the ingenuity in structural engineering that Reidsteel are renowned for, combined with a long history of providing bridges around the world, it was this pedigree of excellence which Interserve Construction Ltd looked to utilise.
Subsequently Reidsteel were appointed to provide the new Interserve bridge at the Templeborough Biomass Power Plant.
