RVA to present redundant asset management seminar

RVA Group will be exhibiting at the 2014 Plant and Asset Management show at the NEC later in the spring. The event, which expects to attract over 40,000 visitors, takes place at the NEC Birmingham from Tuesday 8th until Thursday 10th April.

One of the highlights of the plant, works and maintenance calendar, the exhibition also includes an extensive seminar programme covering a broad spectrum of engineering developments and issues presented by a selection of industry experts.

RVA’s MD Richard Vann will lead a seminar session exploring the challenges and opportunities associated with redundant asset management planning. He will highlight best value strategies giving examples of projects ranging from a complete site exit to the removal of a single redundant asset from a large-scale, high-hazard, operational site.

If you wish to discuss your specific asset management planning issues during the show please visit RVA in Hall 3, stand P412.

Bookings to attend Richard’s presentation can be made via the show’s website www.maintenanceuk-expo.com

RVA operations director to present at leading demolition event

RVA Group operations director Ian Wharton has been invited to deliver an educative presentation at the Institute of Demolition Engineers’ (IDE) autumn seminar in Westminster, London.

Echoing RVA Group’s mission statement, Ian’s ‘Process Plant Sector Decommissioning & Dismantling’ presentation is designed to:

• Help deliver totally safe, environmentally secure and legislatively compliant projects

• Nurture a learning event culture aligned with a zero tolerance approach to all incidents and injuries

• Encourage engineering excellence, innovation and best value for clients.

Speaking exclusively to members of the Institute on 29 September, Ian will then encourage questions from the floor, providing delegates with additional knowledge transfer opportunities.

Ian has worked with some of the world’s largest and most prestigious blue-chip organisations, in sectors including oil and gas, pharmaceutical, chemical and petrochemical, power and energy, manufacturing, local authority and housing. He is therefore an incredibly experienced and competent engineer who is well placed to offer best-practice advice for demolition professionals seeking to further develop their expertise.

Saint-Gobain Pipelines

I would like to take this opportunity again to thank you and your team at RVA for the work that you have performed in clearing the Hallam and Central Melting Plant site here at Ilkeston. This is the second time that we have used your company and the service that we have received was exemplary. It is absolutely essential on any demolition project that health and safety is the priority and your team has clearly delivered in this regard. We have benefited hugely from the resource and skill that you have applied to managing the demolition project as this allows the team at Saint-Gobain PAM UK to concentrate on our own ongoing business.

Your teams are always of a very high standard and I have very much enjoyed the close working relationship that we have developed with RVA. It ensures that we at Saint-Gobain PAM UK are kept fully informed of progress and any issues arising on the site, and they have also been invaluable in keeping a close control on the costs of the contractor.
