Asset maintenance for the power sector
CRL have been providing asset maintenance services to the power industry for 65 years. We work with all the generating companies in the UK in the fossil fuel, nuclear power and renewable energy sectors.We fully understand the operational constraints and safety requirements associated with this industry.
Our extensive experience in this industry sector often means we are engaged during the concept stage by Clients to provide early contractor involvement (ECI). This allows us to develop value engineered solutions reducing costs, programme time, operational disruption and safety risks.
In the Nuclear Sector we have worked at all the generating and decommissioned stations across the UK including major schemes at the nuclear reprocessing site at Sellafield. This work has included long term general maintenance contracts to comply with LC28 requirements including provision of deliverables necessary for either INSA or CAT3 station approvals.
In renewable energy we work with most of the on-shore wind farm operators in the UK and Ireland helping to install, monitor and maintain the concrete bases. This requires specialist expertise to ensure the towers are fully grouted into the concrete foundations using industry specific grouts and pumping equipment. We have also developed our own remote monitoring system which records the tower movement and identifies when further grouting might be required.
We are UVDB Verify accredited by Achilles; supplier number 72329. Our staff are fully trained in Confined Space Working and hold appropriate CSCS cards.
“Just a quick note to thank the team for a successful project carrying out the concrete repairs to our Unit 2 and 3 sub-basements. The works were completed to a high standard with a good safely record in one of the station’s most difficult environments.”
