Hertel wins decommissioning project with Astrel Alliance at Sellafield
Multi-discipline construction and maintenance service provider Hertel has partnered with Jacobs and Studsvik to win a substantial nuclear decommissioning contract at Calder Hall, Sellafield.
The three companies secured the competitive tender after forming a joint venture called the Astrel Alliance for the Sellafield Decommissioning, Demolition and Waste Stream Framework (DDWSF).
The Calder Hall contract incorporates the removal of all steelwork and pipework from two of the heat exchangers.
Work started in August 2011 and is scheduled to run for one year. A multi discipline team of up to 40 personnel will be employed on the project at any one time.
Des Graves, Hertel Decommissioning Manager at Calder Hall, commented: “We are delighted to have been awarded the latest Sellafield project and look forward to working with the Astrel Alliance on this project.”
John Hall, Hertel’s Business Development Manager, added: “The project win is a reflection of our impressive 23 year history at the site and will grant us the opportunity to further demonstrate our nuclear decommissioning capability and long-term commitment to Sellafield Ltd.”
