Wylfa Nuclear Power Station Gas Circulator Turbine Shaft Enclosures

D. Hughes Welding & Fabrication were awarded the contract for 8 Gas Circulator Enclosures.

A project of aprox 180 tonnes of steel fabricated at our workshop and detailed using Strucad.

Our success and incorporating numerous client modifications and design changes as well as achieving completion dates.

Cefni Bridge

The contract was awarded in November 2009 by Dawnus and by utilising our in-house 3D modelling and rendering software to produce all fabrication drawings in house.

Featuring curved trusses and stainless steel railings a relatively complex but elegant structure. Handrail posts were laser-cut to required profiles and feature polished stainless steel grab rails and high-tension intermediate cables. The design of the bridge allows us to transport it in sections, which are not only easier to handle but vastly reduce road- transportation costs, which may have otherwise been incurred.

Site Installation of bridge was carried out by D. Hughes Welding & Fabrication and Bob Francis Crane hire in February 2010. All works were completed in March 2010 on schedule.
