Giant Bars for Scottish Quay from Stainless UK

15 Sep 2015

Stainless UK have supplied 23 giant solid round stainless steel bars with a  5” diameter and 3m long for use in the construction of an extension to the quay at Campbeltown Harbour on the Kintyre peninsula in Scotland. The bars weighing over 100kgs each were used in the new piled wall built to form the new quay.


Since 2005, Campeltown has developed into a major port used by local manufacturers of wind turbine components. With turbines getting bigger, larger ships are required to transport the components. To facilitate this, a new 140m long quay wall has been built and the quay dredged and lowered by 3m. The finished quay, which has been funded by Argyll and Bute Council, will accommodate the F-type vessels currently being used and be capable of handling the larger S-type vessels expected to be used in the future.


The bars supplied by Stainless UK are in a Duplex Grade 1.4462 (F51) stainless steel. This material has been selected because of its high resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion in a chloride environment such as the new harbour wall.


In addition to supplying a wide range products in Grades 304 and 316 stainless steels, Stainless UK are also stockholders of a range of specialist grades for heat and corrosive applications.
