Case Study - British Energy Nuclear Liabilities Review (42.0 KiB)
RVA Group has once again supported British Energy in its periodic reassessment of the assets and liabilities of its nuclear power plants, having been appointed to assess a range of structures within the ‘non-controlled’ areas of stations at Hartlepool, Heysham 1, Heysham 2 and Dungeness B.
The RVA team of five specialist consultants provided a range of knowledge and services including demolition engineering, estimating and work breakdown structure (WBS) compilation.
RVA provided specialist project management services to ensure the safe and best-value demolition of eight hyperbolic cooling towers on two Magnox sites – Calder Hall and Chapelcross.
