Powertherm were awarded the contract to provide the insulation works, scaffolding and temporary access structure based upon their technical ability and successful completion of the Allington Energy from Waste Project. The project ran between 2008 – 2010. 

Powertherm used the cuplock system for the scaffold part of the contract. This system assisted in reducing the time required for the contract, due to the ease in which it can be installed and offered the client peace of mind from a safety perspective.
