Safety at end-of-life

Although by definition this area is always the last item on everyone’s “to-do list”, dismantling is a key area of safety and risk management and needs to be given due consideration. Particularly in sectors where there is a high potential for environmental damage or risk of injury, it is essential to handle dismantling with as much care as you would apply to planning or construction.


When a power plant has reached the end of its viable working life, careful dismantling, disposal and recycling or reuse represent key areas of safety and risk management. Particularly where there is a high potential for environmental damage or risk of injury, it is essential to handle dismantling with maximum consideration and care. Key issues here will be environmental inspections and mitigating associated risks, as well as plant safety inspections both before and during dismantling. Our decades of experience in planning, construction and commissioning power plants gives us unique insights into how to manage the complex process of dismantling these facilities safely and with minimal environmental impact. Whatever the nature of your dismantling project is, we will be pleased to work with you to devise a safe and effective strategy for its successful realization.
