Operators in the nuclear sector must balance a requirement for minimal downtime with the need for critical plant maintenance. With nuclear generating over 10% of the world’s electricity, it’s vital that existing facilities are managed with the utmost care to continue to meet demand.
Nuclear heavy lifting and transportation manoeuvres can combine lifting, tilting, skidding and hydraulic turning techniques, which demands careful planning, inventive problem solving and faultless execution to ensure minimal disruption and downtime. We provide engineering resource early in the planning process to produce important HSQE and nuclear safety documentation ahead of critical plant outages, mitigating risk and minimising operational impact. Alongside these best-in-class HSQE standards we champion innovative engineering.
We have developed strong working relationships with key players, delivering heavy lifting projects ranging from the replacement of steam generators and reactor heads to the design of systems for dismantling turbines and electrical generators. We have also designed bespoke lifting systems to fit within existing station designs – a skill which has won us recognition for our flexibility, plus multiple project awards.
