Nuclear expertise and safety performance: key to success

“[Amec Foster Wheeler] traditionally has a good and strong working relationship with Sellafield. This has been crucial in delivering this difficult package of work with the numerous stakeholders of all levels from plant up to the NDA and regulatory agencies.”
Kevin McCormick, Project Implementation Manager, Sellafield Limited

Within the Sellafield site there are two high level ventilation stacks which are nearing the end of their operational lives and are scheduled for demolition in the near future. The objective of the Separation Area Ventilation (SAV) project is to divert aerial effluents from these stacks to a new discharge facility that will meet current and future operational and decommissioning needs.

"[Amec Foster Wheeler’s] nuclear expertise and safety performance in working at Sellafield has been evident by the overwhelming success of the enabling work. We have grown to rely on this approach to continually deliver progress here at Sellafield."
Kevin McCormick, Project Implementation Manager, Sellafield Ltd

Over the last five years we have provided engineering and detailed design for the SAV Project, and is currently completing work on removing risks from the implementation phase of the project.
