EDF Heysham 2

Provide access for the Unit 8 outage in the turbine hall

Project Brief
Provide access for the Unit 8 outage in the turbine hall. Around 300 structures were erected during this outage and were compared with those same jobs in 2011. 
Key Project Obstacles
EDF had recently invested in their own aluminium boards which were to be utilised on site. Stair towers have been identified as best practise for use across all EDF sites. A number of various sized lifting frames were required for the outage in the turbine hall.

HAKI Solutions
EDF’s aluminium decks fitted perfectly onto the HAKI system as it is compatible with all types of steel and aluminium decks as well as scaffold boards without the need for specialist fittings.
With the HAKI Stair Tower Cape were able to implement best practise on multiple jobs in the outage without compromising on efficiency due to the speed and ease in erecting the tower.
In order to avoid delays in installing lifting frames a standard 1 tonne HAKI lifting frame was designed which could be used without the need for individual sign off. This could also be increased to in excess of 3 tonnes subject to design approval.

HAKI Benefits
Working in close partnership, HAKI were able to assist Cape in rolling out the HAKI Universal system, improving productivity whilst maintaining a high level of safety.    
Client Feedback
The comparison to 2011 figures demonstrates that when utilised effectively HAKI does produce the efficiency savings that Cape expected.
