SRD Refinery, Dunkirk

RVA worked closely with SRD from June 2016 until January 2017. The RVA team assigned to the project included a project manager present on site and multi-skilled individuals working both from the RVA UK office and site visits.

■ RVA was very helpful with the provision of site isolation philosophy and decontamination strategy. This was especially important to SRD as we were short of skills due to the early departure of staff and unfamiliarity with industry best practice for the hand-over of process units and equipment to demolition contractors.

■ RVA followed a meticulous process for the preselection of demolition companies during the tendering process, with a strong emphasis on the HSE standards and capabilities of the contractors. The tender package put together by RVA was very detailed and comprehensive, reflecting their long experience in decommissioning, decontamination and demolition projects. RVA has demonstrated robust best-in-class processes in their field of expertise.

I was personally impressed with the efforts and abilities of RVA personnel. They displayed strong attention to detail and a genuine concern for the well-being of the project. I felt that we were always working together in order to achieve the project’s deliverables.

It has been my great pleasure working with you.
