Pouring a radiation door for new turbine testing facility at Rolls Royce Derby

Burton where contracted for this exciting job on the new rolls Royce aerospace testing facility, once complete it will be the largest test bed of its kind in the world. Over 400 tonnes of self compacting concrete where poured into a radiation door over 4 visits. After initial consultation and site visit, Burton supplied one of our versatile Putzmeister M24 concrete boom pumps to site in Derby. With its low unfolding height and flexibility it is perfect for the task,  the pipeline was reduced from 125mm to 70mm and threaded down through the steel frame work inside the door.
