Thyssen Geotechnical has completed the stabilisation of a 200 year old blast furnace at the Blaenavon World Heritage site in Wales. Blast Furnace No 5 at the Blaenavon Iron Works is one of the major landmarks at the site, which was granted World Heritage status because of its major contribution to iron and coal production during the 19th century.

Thyssen installed more than 200 Cintec cavity rock anchors in the interior core of the furnace, which was suffering from ongoing collapse.

Client for the repairs is Cadw: Welsh Historic Monuments.
