Working with PDL, you can be reassured that you are getting suitably qualified, highly skilled engineers, with the right security procedures and a raft of evidence of successful projects in the Civil Nuclear industry.
At PDL we have a long track record of providing professional engineering support to major projects across the three major facets of the Nuclear industry;
1. Nuclear New Build: In addition to the programme at Hinckley Point, PDL support international clients on projects such as the ITER magnetic fusion reactor project in Cadarache, France.
2. Existing Site Life Extension: We at PDL have collaborated with EDF on the AGR fleet which, without intervention, would have been scheduled to close over the nine-year period from 2014 (Heysham 1 and Hartlepool) to 2023 (Heysham 2 and Torness)
3. Existing Site Decommissioning: We have particular expertise working on Decommissioning projects, gained on numerous tasks from the Windscale Advanced Gas Cooled Reactor (WAGR) through to recent enhancements to Sellafield’s Box Encapsulation facility.
You can be confident that our engineers conform to the required regulatory framework and safety quality principals and are considered 'suitably qualified and experienced personnel' (SQEP). They are typically educated to Masters or PhD level; have undertaken continued professional development (CPD) to gain Chartered status; and have also participated in Nuclear specific training, often through our membership of the National Skills Academy Nuclear (NSAN).
You can be confident in our security measures;
We have participated in the NDA Mentoring Scheme over a two-year period, working with mentors from Mott MacDonald and Jacobs to improve our processes and procedures and ensure alignment with Civil Nuclear expectations.
PDL has developed an extensive network of collaborators from all tiers of the industry and participate in frameworks including;
So, how do PDL support the Civil Nuclear programme, whether that be New Build, Life Extension or Decommissioning?
PDL engineers will eliminate your risk, enhance your performance, save you time and reduce your costs. For some examples of the benefits we can bring to your project, please refer to our case studies.
