Exeter EfW is an Energy from Waste (EfW) plant. The Combined Heat and Power (CHP) facility will use energy stored in non– recyclable waste to produce heat and electricity. THE Steel Stanchions and plant bases at this facility had voids around and underneath them which had to be filled. There were a variety of sizes and shapes which required filling with something that would be strong and non – shrinking..
Routine maintenance inspections had identified numerous defects to the bridge structure, these included concrete spalling and cracking to the pier caps as well as corrosion to some of the steel elements. This required strengthening to the bearings and some works to the fish plates.
