News: Corus learns from Flood experience


Rotherham based Corus Engineering Steels is developing new forms of flood defences after the damage to the Stocksbridge plant from last year's floods cost around £8m to fix. Also based partly on experience from the Netherlands, CES is is considering another use for the giant concrete blocks it is making at Roundwood in Rotherham as part of a major investment to improve scrap segregation for its Aldwarke plant. The blocks can be built into a wall and covered in plastic, acting as a flood defence and could be turned into a spin-off business as the blocks can be easily transported and put together.
