Enigma Industrial Services has been awarded a high-profile nuclear project by Kier.
The Sellafield Product and Residue Store Retreatment Plant (SRP) project is part of a £1bn-£1.5bn project funded by the NDA (Nuclear Decommissioning Authority) to provide safe storage of special nuclear material for at least 100 years.
Delivered through the Programme and Project Partners (PPP) model, the project involves the construction of a seismically designed reinforced concrete structure which will act as an annexe to an existing facility.
Enigma’s project scope includes the provision of access to facilitate the formwork, reinforcement and concreting by Kier. Having worked together previously on significant projects at Sellafield, Kier, selected Enigma to provide an innovative and cost-effective access solution.
Commenting on the project award, Kayvon Azadi, Enigma General Manager, said: “Our site team have worked diligently to determine the requirements of the project and provide an innovative solution. This award is a testament to their efforts and ability to create a cost-effective solution that combines safety and operational excellence. We are looking forward to delivering another world-class major project on-site at Sellafield with Kier”.
Enigma has been trusted to deliver complex projects on-site at Sellafield for over a decade and have taken advantage of the partnership with HAKI to provide an innovative solution using system scaffold. The HAKI system incorporates efficiency and adaptability benefits, coupled with an unrivalled safe system of work.
When compared to implementing a conventional scaffold solution, Enigma’s system scaffolding proposal helped reduce estimated access costs by 20% over a 2-year period. Designed by Enigma’s in-house Design & Engineering Team, the scaffold structures will require up to 800 tonnes of equipment and reach a height of 29 metres.
The project is expected to run until 2023.
