|ENGINEERING PROJECT PROFILE
COTTAM POWER STATION
As a main supply chain partner, Jilland Engineering
Limited has undertaken the following packages in the
prestigious FGD project at Cottam Power Station.
Pump Houses 2 and 3
These steel framed buildings consist of approximately
650 tonnes of structural steelwork. The structures
house and support the main induction fans, pumps and
ductwork for the absorber process. The buildings were
supplied complete with access stairs, floored areas,
hand railing and sheeting rails. Pump House 2 also
incorporates a lift shaft which accesses seven levels
from ground to the top of absorbers 2 and 3.

As our remit is one of complete “Turnkey”,
Jilland Engineering Division provide detail design
and manufacture of all structural elements (through
our in-house Fabrication Plant), application of high
spec paint systems and full erection, including cranage,
all internally sourced through our Erection and Plant
divisions. Moreover, as a fully compliant Engineering
Contractor, Jilland Engineering Division have managed
all quality aspects of the project by the application
of our ISO 9001:2000 accredited management systems,
ensuring our “right-first-time” ethos is
The Waste Water Treatment Building
A steel structure consisting of 350 tonnes of structural
steelwork, this building was built in two stages. The
first stage, up to 15m level, allowed the civil contractor
to complete concreting works and thus permitted installation
of two pre-assembled belt filters prior to the roof
structure being erected. This eastern europe map flexible approach to
programme sequencing and problem solving management
is actively encouraged within Jilland, and ensures
that the needs of the project are at the forefront
of our management philosophy.
COTTAM POWER STATION
The Mill Building
A steel structure consisting of 160 tonnes of steelwork, built around two
pre-erected ball mills. All the structures are connected with substantial Pipe
Bridges and again, the entire package has been detailed, manufactured and
erected by Jilland Engineering Division.
Limestone Silos Cones
Jilland Engineering Division were contracted to site assemble, site weld and
weld test two silo cones complete with support rings weighing 75 tonnes each
16 metres in diameter. Once pre-assembled, Jilland Engineering Division supervised
contract lifts into the concrete silos and positioned the silo cones ready for
With our current portfolio of works nearing completion, Jilland Engineering Division
remain actively involved in the tender process for the remaining packages of
structural steel and mechanicals work, and we remain committed to providing engineering
excellence to the principal contractor RWE for the life of this project and beyond.
McNICHOLAS RAIL LIMITED
FTN 2 - Areas 47 and 64
As part of the National Fixed Telecoms Network Programme, Jilland Rail Division
was employed as the sole contractor to the principal, McNicholas Rail and Laing
O'Rourke on areas 47 & 64 and 35 & 63 respectively.
With full responsibility for the execution of the entire portfolio of works,
Jilland Rail Division has provided an 80 strong workforce, including all site
management and safety critical staff to undertake:
• Vegetation Removal
• Civil Route Installations
• Fibre and Copper Joint Bays
• Loc Bases and Hard Standings
• Cable Installation - Fibre and Copper
Both Projects were successfully completed on budget and with no incidents or

CHIMNEY DEMOLITION AT WEST BURTON
Client: EDF Energy (West Burton Power) Limited
In October 2003 we were awarded a contract for the
demolition of two 183 metre high, single flue, brick
lined reinforced concrete stacks at West Burton Power
Station, Nottinghamshire. Our two demolition teams,
working on both stacks simultaneously, have to date
removed approximately 150 Tonnes of internal steelwork,
800 cubic metres of brick lining and 1900 cubic metres
of concrete, with separation of asbestos contaminated
material as necessary.
achieve this performance level we have used our
frame mounted hydraulic breakers. Initially jacked
into position at the top, they “climb down” the
structure, breaking up and removing the concrete
windshield. In this instance, due to stability
constraints on the stack, it is removing the lining
too. The breaker frame is adjustable, allowing
it cope with the changes in diameter as the demolition
proceeds. Accompanying the breaker frame is an
external suspended platform which is also adjustable.
This provides an enclosed access deck for our personnel
assisting the breakout operation, and also acts
to contain the concrete debris.
platform is serviced by an Alimak construction hoist
allowing easy access by both our own and our
Periodically, the accumulated spoil is removed from the base of the stack and
transported to an onsite tip. Once the stack is within reach of ground based
demolition machinery then the remaining stub will be removed by more conventional
This project was the largest mechanical demolition ever undertaken in the UK
and was successfully completed ahead of schedule and within budget.
FABRICATION PROJECT PROFILE
The Fabrication Plant provides bespoke manufacturing services to the Engineering,
Construction and related sectors.
Of the more impressive fabrications recently manufactured are 30 Cruciform
Columns up to 17.5m long made from 533x210 JB’s with Tees welded both
sides of the web for the full length with complex plated connections at three
places along the length. Many of these floor beams are made from plate girders
manufactured within the Fabrication Plant.
Another recent projects have involved;
- The manufacture and supply of electrostatic precipitator steelwork
sections for Environmental Elements USA contract at Corus Works
Port Talbot, South Wales. Approximately 450 tonnes have been
fabricated, shotblasted, painted and transported to site.
- The supply of steelwork for four Fossil Fuel Power Station Magnox
Emission Systems, total weight of 2000 tonnes
supply of steelwork for two major incinerator
plants in the
South of England, approximate weight of 1600 tonnes.
In parallel with the larger contracts, we are currently manufacturing
small packages for other valued clients such as McNicholas
Rail, Rugby Cement, Lodge Sturtevant,
Robinson Structures Limited and FLS MILJO.
All our work is undertaken by skilled craftsmen, certificated to
and in accordance with all the latest British Standards and the
National Structural Steelwork Specification
