Dixon Scaffolding were appointed by the Electricity Alliance East - a partnership between the National Grid UK and Balfour Beatty - to provide access above a live road used by all the goods vehicles entering the Drax Power Station complex.

The Layher Bridging Truss System design, allowed the 18.5m span section to be assembled at ground level and then craned into position. "We were given permission to close the road for six hours overnight but in reality we needed only four," says Dixon Scaffolding Managing Director, Lee Dixon, "which compares dramatically to a 'traditional' tube and fitting approach which, we anticipate, could have required continuous closure for some 24 hours."

The Drax site has also been the location for scaffolding contractor Deborah Services Ltd to make extensive use of Layher modular systems over a six-year period for the ongoing maintenance of six boiler units undertaken by Doosan Babcock Energy.
