Power Station

For over 15 years, Chepstow Plant International have been the main incumbent and contract supply partner for the UK’s largest coal power station. Initially, this collaboration began with just a selection of loading shovels which only partially met Drax’s material handling requirements. As time progressed, both companies forged a synergistic partnership, resulting in the present situation, whereby Chepstow Plant International provide all the necessary equipment for Drax’s material handling requirements. Some of the work Chepstow Plant International provides is:

  • - Reclamation from stock for delivery to generators
  • - Loading and hauling of bio-mass products
  • - Campaign extraction of site lagoons
  • - Loading of trains

Naturally, this contract is a high-dependency application, as the power station operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. In order to be able to meet demand, Chepstow Plant International has invested in 4 x Caterpillar 657G scrapers and Caterpillar D8 and D9 bulldozers for the control of PFA stocks. Furthermore, to ensure demand can be met, Chepstow Plant International have a resident team of maintenance fitters to ensure the “Up-Time” is maximised and only take machines out of operation at scheduled intervals.
