        Drax Power Station

        Background

        Vac-Ex have recently completed a vacuum excavation project at Drax Power Station near Goole. The station was changed from a coal fired station to one running on Biomass Fuel.

        Job Description

        An extension to the power room was required which meant foundations had to be built in existing ground. Reduced level excavation works were required.

        Key Issues

        Uncharted services were assumed to be in the foundation area, so proof digging was required.

        Solution

        Two 32t Mega vacuum excavation units were supplied to the contractor, Shepherds of York and the existence of all services were proved.

        Conclusion

        Works completed to programme with ZERO strikes. There were no reported incidents in respect of service strikes.
