Grangemouth – Tube and fitting access to vessels

Title:

Tube and fitting access scaffold

Client:

BP

Scaffold Contractor:

Bilfinger Industrial Services

Site:

Grangemouth

Details:

Scaffolds were required to gain access to the vessels for blasting and painting works. With load restrictions imposed on the vessels, low ground bearing capacities and no ties permitted into the vessel structures the design proved to be a challenging one. A combination of plan girders, butts and raking shores onto the adjacent steel structures were used to combat the wind loads. The use of road plates and sleepers were utilised to reduce bearing pressures to an acceptable level.
