The Industrial Services Division of the Pyeroy Group in the UK has won a £1.7 million (€1.9 million) contract to provide scaffolding services at the new €422 million Marchwood Power power station in Southampton, Hampshire. Fifty of its workers will erect scaffolding to enable insulation work on two 70 m outlet stacks by spring 2009.

Principal contractor Siemens Power Generation has also awarded Pyeroy the contract to fit and insulate the piping system for the combined cycle, natural gas boilers and associated structural steel installation and welding work.

The state-of-the-art, 842 MW Marchwood plant is scheduled to open this year and will generate enough electricity for nearly one million homes. It will be one of the most efficient generators of electricity in the UK when it comes online, said Pyeroy, based in Gateshead.

Project manager Malcolm Hood of Pyeroy said, "We won the contract because of our expertise and track record in managing complex projects involving engineered scaffolding and specialist insulation work.

Pyeroy's Industrial Services Division provides contract scaffolding and equipment rental, surface preparation and application of marine/industrial protective coatings, insulation, civil engineering/building, and environmental management services.
