In 1984, Nissan and the UK Government agreed to build a large car plant in the North East of England. Sunderland was chosen at a time of the closure of most of the shipyards and many coal mines. The site chosen, on the outskirts of Sunderland, was once the Sunderland Airfield, The first car rolled off the plant in 1986 and the plant has grown from strength to strength with it’s skilled work force.
Schiedel Chimney Systems were tasked with providing two exhaust flue systems and two air intake flue systems at the plant.
The internal flues were Prima Plus single wall, before they went outside they were converted to twin wall ICS Plus.
The exhaust flues were 350mm diameter single wall flues made from 0.6mm 316 stainless steel with a maximum weight of 5.5kg in a 1metre long section from two Broag 610-6 gas fired condensing boilers located in the ground floor plant room.
The air intake flue systems were two 350mm diameter single wall flues made from 0.6mm 316 stainless steel with a maximum weight of 5.5kg in a 1metre long section from two Broag 610-6 gas fired condensing boilers located in the ground floor plant room.
The flues terminated with a square flange plate butted up to the inside of the louvre panel and each flue joint incorporated a male and female push fit joint complete with locking band.
Each exhaust flue terminated with a tapered terminal complete with mesh cover.
The internal access to install the exhaust flues within the plant room was by means of mobile alloy tower supplied and installed by Schiedel Chimney Systems.
