In November 2012 Caulmert Ltd was appointed by RWE Npower to provide professional engineering services. During the construction of the next phase of the cell works, to facilitate the continued deposition operation of pulverised fuel ash, Caulmert has been providing site based CQA engineering duties in the land reclamation scheme, at the quarry adjacent to the power station.
Under the approved Specification and Construction Quality Assurance Plan Caulmert’s engineer is testing and recording/reporting the construction works. To date most of the works, to the quarry walls, has been carried out and the excavation and crushing works, to form the cell base and the groundwater drainage layer, are progressing. The installation of a specified separation geotextile as well as the construction of the 750mm thick engineered shale mix mineral barrier will be carried out in the coming weeks.
