Ductwork replacement at NNL Sellafield


Aged ductwork starting to fail 

The ductwork in question was over 20 years old and was showing signs of failure in a number of areas. Our brief was to come up with a design, methodology of removal of damaged sections and install the new sections in an active part of the plant.

Managing a multi-stakeholder team for quality and safety assurance

The stringent safety considerations of operating in this environment, along with the close proximity of online plant and services were a challenge.  QA demands were extensive, lifetime quality records and traceability of all materials used during the fabrication was paramount to the client’s needs as well as strict adherence to specifications that had to be recorded.  Coordinating the client’s on-site team and installation operatives to ensure compliance and maintain the erecting programme was a significant challenge for FEG.
