Projects for firm at Corus.

The Teesside office of consultants White Young Green has clinched a series of projects at two plants of steel giant Corus.

The Thornaby-based team has won the project at Corus Engineering Steel's plants in Thrybergh Bar Mill and Aldwarke Bloom Caster in Rotherham.

Thrybergh is a continuous bar mill where the rolling of bar and coil projects is undertaken. At Aldwarke the first stages of steel production take place including specialist processes for the automotive and related markets.

Modernisation and refurbishment work is taking place at both sites involving the civil engineering design of major new building foundations with improvements to production processes.

The work forms part of a modernisation programme which is central to Corus remaining at the forefront of the steel industry.

White Young Green originally built the Thrybergh mill in the 1970s followed by the Aldwark plant in the 1980s.

Colin Fenby, director of White Young Green, said: "When the plants were built 20 to 30 years ago, the technology used was leading edge, but with continual improvements and upgrades throughout the industry, Corus is aware of the need to keep developing and improving to retain its place in the market and safeguard jobs."

Work starts this month with a new coiler line which produces enormous coils of fine steel bars at Thrybergh, before the team moves to Aldwarke.
