Contractor FLO JV
Products used Easikit 600 conveyor
 
 

Context

FLO JV are constructing part of the Thames Tideway super sewer tunnel project on the Albert Embankment close to Vauxhall Bridge.

Requirement

The site is located on the foreshore and has tight space constraints making delivery of material to the tunnel shafts difficult. Coveya were called into look at the feasibility of installing a temporary conveyor solution to move backfill material from the delivery area along the river path to the newly constructed cofferdam in the river – a distance of approximately 80m.

The river path has been closed to the public and is used by multiple teams working on or within the cofferdam. The traditional method of using wheeled plant to transport the backfill material would have not only been inefficient and costly but would have brought safety challenges too.

Solution

Coveya's proposal included a 3D drawing to assist with the project planning and then its fitting team installing the conveyors which were a bespoke solution based on the Easikit 600 conveyor.

Outcome

The conveyors were loaded by an excavator and then material was then efficiently discharged 80m away into the cofferdam by the conveyors before being levelled and compacted by another excavator.
