Recent Project – Chain Bridge

During this project our team carried out NDT in the form of ultrasonic thickness measurement on various elements of Chain bridge. Rope access is a great way of getting skilled engineers to get a close look at structures.  It is important to remember that the skill engineer is the really important bit.

In addition we removed the end plates from the transverse beams, cleaned then measured the cross sectional dimensions ofthe hangers.

Once the measurements had been taken we painted the cleaned areas to provide protection.  These works were undertaken with minimal disruprion or additional loading on the structure.
