Decommissioning services overview
Nobody knows an asset better than the people who own, operate, and maintain it on a day-to-day basis. However, preparing plants, buildings and structures for their eventual decommissioning requires a very distinct set of decontamination, demolition, and dismantling skills. RVA’s consulting engineers therefore support clients, globally, throughout their entire assets’ lifespan.
Drawing upon years of specialist engineering experience, sector knowledge and unbiased commercial awareness, RVA offers a wide range of services from which clients can select, develop, and implement bespoke strategies, tailored to deliver the optimum solutions for their projects.
With no two projects ever the same, some organisations choose to approach RVA for support with key asset lifecycle milestones only, for example. Others prefer to enlist RVA’s independent project management and technical expertise from the earliest possible opportunity. Either way, all our decommissioning services are available individually, and will be tailored to the requirements of each unique assignment, whether you’re looking for an initial asset retirement strategy, or a comprehensive principal designer package.
When should a decommissioning engineer get involved?
Decommissioning is often considered as an extension of site maintenance, which is understandable if a plant has periodically been shut down for such works. But draining tanks and temporarily isolating services ahead of a restart is very different to actually cutting cables and decommissioning the asset entirely because it has reached its end of life…
Headquartered in the UK and with offices in Europe, RVA has supported major global brands including BASF, INEOS, Engie, ConocoPhillips and GSK – to name just a few – on decommissioning projects all over the world. Managing and respecting cultural, language, resource, experience and time zone challenges, is core to upholding technical excellence.
