Feat of Engineering
HTL while working through our Specialise On-Site Bolting and Training Division ‘Gastech’, have just completed an unusual On-Site Bolting task by aiding to erect a 20m-high Celtic cross erected as a landmark on the Cornwall county boundary. The two-tonne cross is made of carbon fibre and resin impregnated with copper and the cross was lifted into place by three cranes on the Saltash side of the River Tamar. The foundation bolts were tensioned by the Gastech Bolting Technicians by utilising SRT2 (M24) Tensioners. The colour of the cross's pillar is achieved by the oxidisation of the copper,
impregnated in resin and then bead-blasted to bring the copper to the surface. Liam Bradley, chairman of the Saltash Waterfront Residents Association commented "We hope it will become an iconic landmark, our version of the Angel of the North and expecting another 50,000 visitors in the town every year!!
