T2 Heathrow Airport Excavation
Coveya were delighted to work with Thames Materials on a project based at Terminal 2, Heathrow Airport where we supplied 5 of our 15m GP750 conveyors for a six week hire all of which moved over 1000 tonnes of material per day.
The project saw the excavation of a very large hole, approximately 85m x 170m x 17m deep with the underground space being used for baggage handling system and the vast majority of the excavation soil was removed via a ramp and lorries.
The plan had been to use a long reach telescopic clamshell excavator to remove the remaining soil once the ramp had been removed however, it was impossible to put a lateral load onto a piled wall and therefore the GP750 was choosen to remove the final loads of spoil which included heavy and sticky clay.
