Power station chimney refurbishment: case study

During the summer of 2007 Bailey International undertook a major power station chimney refurbishment. The contract was at the time the biggest single contract awarded to a steeplejack company. The chimney consisting of a 200m high concrete windshield containing four brick built liners each 7m in diameter. Using a specially designed man riding platform the liners were fully inspected following a complete wash down and defects to the original refractory brickwork rectified. A new ‘Hadek’ borosilicate refractory lining was applied and expansion joints replaced. Working around the clock with two twelve hour shifts Bailey’s engineers successfully completed the contract within budget and ahead of programme.
