Naylor Thermachem pipes installed at Battlefield EFW Plant, Shrewsbury
Naylor Thermachem pipes have been installed at Veolia’s Battlefield EFW plant in Shrewsbury. The facility will treat approx. 90,000 tonnes of Shropshire’s waste per year, generating enough electricity to power around 45,000 homes. With recycling schemes already in place landfill for the region will be reduced to just 5%. Thermachem pipes were chosen due to their excellent resistance to thermal shock and will carry boiler blow down water from the boiler to a holding tank, where water will be cooled and treated for re-use or discharge.
Different coloured couplings, usually used to distinguish the coupler seal material, where used to identify the two different pipelines carrying different discharges. Clugston construction installed the pipes working in conjunction with EFW experts CNIM. Clugston have constructed several EFW plants in the UK, often using Naylor Thermachem pipes including at Leeds at Wilton plants.
