Turnmill is proud to announce that approximately 140 t of steel plate and structural sections with 3.6 t of welding consumables moved through its workshop within the space of nine months, which included trial-assemblies, painting and in-house site-erection simulations.

All the above contributed to a timeously delivered quality product.
