JB Rawcliffe & Sons Ltd has just completed the handling and transportation of a 63,000kg RCR Energy boiler from Tilbury Docks to Nestlé’s Project Dove state of the art coffee factory in Tutbury.
12 months in the planning, JB Rawcliffe & Sons Ltd were involved from the beginning when we were contacted and contracted to complete a route survey for the boiler at 15179mm long x 5328mm wide x 4637mm high from the UK port of entry to the delivery site for the boiler which was shipped from New Zealand. JB Rawcliffe & Sons Ltd liaised with the Highway Agency and police to obtain the necessary road permits for the movement.
In conjunction with RCR Energy JB Rawcliffe & Sons Ltd were able to assist in the engineering, design and manufacture the end suspension bookends which allowed the boiler to be supported and suspended from bolsters located on Nicolas MDED modular axles at each end.
JB Rawcliffe & Sons Ltd accepted the boiler at Tilbury Dock were we fitted our bookends to the boiler and removed the base shipping frame for the successful delivered to site.
