Non Food Projects

Brookshaw Stuart’s main sector of work was initially within the food industry. However, we have diversified significantly since, applying our expertise into numerous additional fields and gaining valuable fresh experience.

Installation of Kahl Pelleting Plant for Bio Fuel, Cambridge

Installation of Kahl Pelleting Plant for Bio Fuel, CambridgeWorking alongside the engineering consultants GDE Associates, Brookshaw Stuart were tasked with the installation of a pellet processing plant that would make the plant and process 100% efficient.

Installation whilst plant was fully active

The project entailed the installation of:

  • A BRT bunker
  • Two Kahl pellet presses
  • Dampening screw conveyors
  • Elevators
  • Incline and straight drag link conveyors
  • All fan assisted equipment
  • On site fabrication of brackets
  • Fabrication of structural steel and access platforms

Installation Challenges On Site

Installation of Kahl Pelleting Plant for Bio Fuel, CambridgeThe Installation of the BRT Bunker, due to height restrictions in the building was the most challenging aspect of this project.

The information received was that the bunker would come in two sections, requiring one crane on site. When the bunker arrived from Germany it was in fact in one lump, requiring a tandem crane lift. Brookshaw Stuart sourced a second crane and had it on site within half an hour. It was rigged up and the twelve metre, eight tonne bunker was offloaded and directed toward its position.

Due to the restricted height of the building and the height of the elevators, locating the unit proved to be a more complex process. However, with the use of innovative installation techniques in co-operation with Merlo Roto we managed to get all of the equipment installed safely and on time.

Yorkshire Water

Fabricated BracketsBrookshaw Stuart has been contracted to supply fabrication works for numerous Yorkshire Water operational sites for both clean and sewage treatment works in the North, South and West Yorkshire operational areas.

Fabrication work has included chemical trays to ensure that clean water sites are not contaminated. We have fabricated bracketry works for inlets for storm and sludge tanks and more technical brackets for the measurement of levels of water and waste. Some of our most recent works for Yorkshire have been carried out on the below sites.

  • Richmond
  • Huddersfield
  • Knaresborough, Harrogate
  • Esholt, Bradford
  • Knostrop, Leeds

Kingsnorth Power Station, Rochester, Kent

Brookshaw Stuart working alongside Lodge Sternavun installed the electrostatic precipitators that removed particles from the waste before entry into atmosphere. Challenges involved working alongside other contractors under stringent health and safety procedures for this blue book site.

Slough Power Station

Fabricated Water BracketsBrookshaw Stuart and Redler Systems installed a new pelleting plant so that waste could be turned into pellets that would be burnt to create steam for the electricity authority. Brookshaw Stuart provided engineers and worked alongside many other trades to ensure that the project ran safely, smoothly and on time.

Corus Steel

Installation of new conveyor systems for the steel industry working alongside Redler. The stringent controls on site meant that documentation to start and proceed through work was slow, but all understood it was a necessity to ensure everyone went home safe!

Recycling Centre Viridor, Skelmersdale, West Lancashire

Brookshaw Stuart worked on the waste centre facility to update machinery for the processing of waste. In addition to this we also acted on behalf of the client as principal contractor under CDM regulations and managed all other trades on site. Each posed their own challenges but an on time, incident free project was delivered.

Blue Star, Grimsby, East Lincolnshire

Brookshaw Stuart worked alongside Wolverine Proctor to renew the circular dryers used to dry fibres used in the production of airplane seats. Confined space and hot works presented significant safety issues to be dealt with. The material was extremely flammable and before the fibres were processed checks had to be done daily by the onsite fire crew to ensure no hazardous flammable material remained, before work commenced.

Celanese, Spondon, Derbyshire

Brookshaw Stuart was approached direct by Celanese to help with the acid purification system. The stills that were in place had minute cracks that required welding by a coded welder. The project involved using a crane to lift each section of the still to find the cracks and then weld them and reassemble them.

Drax Power Station, Selby, North Yorkshire

Brookshaw Stuart was asked to decommission the hammer mill plant that was used to pulverise material. This was large heavy equipment that required the use of large cranes and constant communication between the many parties involved.

Scotts Fertilizer Plant with Prominex

Here we installed large conveying systems for the removal and processing of fertiliser. Hot works systems were an essential part of the safe systems of work. We also dealt with the large removal equipment brought on site.

BASF Chemical Plant, Widnes, Cheshire

Working alongside carriers, we were contracted to install a bulk system for the removal of the manufactured rat poison, sold worldwide. The stringent onsite controls emphasised that hygiene in particular was a major factor in ensuring the safety for the team and employees of BASF.
