Client: Morgan Sindall
The £1.1 billion Sellafield project involves the redevelopment of the site, delivering a range of essential infrastructure asset services as part of the ‘Infrastructure Strategic Alliance’ – a joint venture between Morgan Sindall and Arup. The Sellafield programme supports the transformation of the site from a nuclear operator into a world leader in environmental remediation.
Genlec has begun final commissioning works as part of its long term contract with Morgan Sindall to deliver mechanical and electrical services at the Sellafield site in West Cumbria.
Work began by the Greater Manchester-based specialist contractor in June 2017 and is expected to conclude in July next year, with a total package scope of £20million.
The wider £1.1 billion project involves the redevelopment of the site, supporting the wider transformation of the site from a nuclear operator into a world leader in environmental remediation.
“The commissioning phase forms a key stage within our scope of works at Sellafield, ensuring that the installation is finalised in-line with strict quality standards right through to commissioning and final handover. Due to the scope, size and nature of the site and the wider project, this is expected to take some 12 months with completion set for Summer 2020.”Jonathan Twentyman, Managing Director of Genlec
A team of 30 Genlec electricians, including a number of apprentices, have been based permanently at the Sellafield site during the past two years.
“This has been a challenging project on many levels. We’ve worked incredibly closely with Morgan Sindall as well as the rest of the supply chain to ensure we meet all targets and are on track as we enter the commissioning phase.”Jonathan Twentyman, Managing Director of Genlec
“We recognise that there aren’t many M&E contractors operating in the North of England that have the resources, capability and experience to deliver a project of this size and complexity and are pleased to be playing an important role in the redevelopment of Sellafield.”
