Alatas UK Ltd was requested to carry out Walker shiploader repairs after fire damage at a site near Bristol in the UK. 

The hydraulic pumping unit (HPU) on the shiploader caught fire and the damage from the fire destroyed the HPU, causing significant damage to the surrounding structure and walkways.  

There was also damage to electrical equipment and cabling, the operator’s cab and various fixtures and fittings which was a result of both the fire and the subsequent emergency response by the fire brigade.

A Field Service team attended site for a survey to assess the damage and define requirements to recover the Walker shiploader.
