Decommissioning

The emerging nuclear decommissioning industry was identified in the early 1980's as an appropriate market sector into which many of the core skills and disciplines could be readily transferred. To date it has recorded an excess of 4,000,000 man-hours of practical decommissioning.

PCR currently employs a multi disciplined workforce with extensive practical experience of operations within the constraints of the nuclear decommissioning industry, conversant with the associated hazard of Alpha, Beta Gamma radiations, Beryllium, chemical combination and asbestos.

Supervisory personnel are IOSH (Institution of Occupational Safety and Health) trained, and the company has currently processed NVQ's in nuclear decommissioning for its workforce.

All site activities are covered by a comprehensive documentation system to comply with both the customer requirements and those directed under ISO 9001 Quality Assurance Scheme.

Contracting methods are pro-active and flexible; in order to maximise the benefit to the customer. Strategic alliances are actively sought where appropriate to enhance contract performance, reduce interfaces and hence minimise risk.
