Keadby Power Station Outage

Sunbelt Rentals were approached by SSE to create a temporary contractors compound, to provide welfare facilities to subcontractors during a planned outage whilst annual maintenance work was carried out.

53 eco anti-vandal cabins including canteens, toilet blocks, drying rooms, smoking shelters, a gatehouse and 21 staircase and platforms.

The Challenge

Keadby Power station is a 755 MW gas-fired power station, built on the site of a former coal-fired power station and is now owned by SSE.

SSE contacted Sunbelt Rentals at the beginning of May. With the outage due to start on the first week in July, Sunbelt Rentals had a short window to plan and deliver SSE’s requirements. With Covid-19 restrictions and subcontractors needing to maintain social distancing, more cabins were required on site than usual.

We created a tailored temporary welfare solution for SSE and provided a full project management service, from the initial site survey to understand requirements to all aspects of the delivery and installation.
Andy Lowrey, Project Manager, Sunbelt Rentals

The Solution

Within a 6-week timeframe, Sunbelt Rentals planned to install a contractor’s compound and deliver 53 eco anti-vandal cabins including toilets, canteens and drying rooms along with 21 staircases and platforms.

Sunbelt Rentals worked closely with manufacturers to provide brand new cabins to SSE, where the cabins were built in the correct sequence to enable Sunbelt Rentals to deliver the units in line with the agreed schedule.

The installation of the 53 cabins began on the 21st June and took a total of 8 working days, finally completing on the 30th June as planned. Working on the installation with two of SSE’s employees, the overall installation process and delivery of the temporary contractors compound more than met SSE’s expectations.

We are so pleased that Sunbelt Rentals have been able to deliver brand new units to site and install them in the timescale that we had set. Sunbelt Rentals have more than met our expectations and we will happily use them again in the future.
Steve Calladine, SSE, Rotating Plant Engineer
