News: Macalloy announce global contracts


Macalloy, the world leader in design, manufacture and supply of threaded bar and cable systems, based at Dinnington in Rotherham, has announced two more global contracts. Following the supply of tendons used on the Dubai Metro red line, Macalloy has successfully been awarded the contract to supply similar bars for use on the green line. The Dubai Metro is thought to be the longest fully automated rail system in the world and the green line will have 18 stations, including 12 elevated and six underground. Last year Macalloy announced that their 460 tendons will be used in the construction of 15 stations along the red line. The company has previously supplied systems for the construction of Dubai Airport and for the foundations of one of the tallest buildings in the United Arab Emirates, the famous Burj Al Arab Hotel. Macalloy have also announced that they are to supply systems to a new crossing between Ballina and Killaloe in Ireland. Their products will be used in the ground engineering works and an articulate joint that will allow movement of the bridge deck. Closer to home, Macalloy tie rods were used to suspend the recently completed Wainwright Bridge, providing a vital road link in Blackburn, Lancashire.
