Excellent containers, the unit used on our project at SL performed perfectly. Will be using the same design again. PacTec help and advice was excellent. For decommissioning and waste removal, PacTec was the perfect choice.

Dragon Waste Project & B241 Pump Module Project Solid Waste and E&EP Project Group
Great news. On behalf of the project, we can’t thank you enough for your support and excellent help in getting us to this point.
From David Hutchinson – Project Manager
Doosan Power Systems Ltd
Following a review of the radiological data, Doosan Power Systems undertook a transport risk assessment and decided that an IP-1 Certified “PacTec” overpack would be the best option for the safe transport of ten 7.5 Tonne Radioactively Contaminated Shield Doors from Berkeley to Gateshead. The Doors were to be decontaminated at Doosan Power Systems Active Waste Management Facility and Magnox required removal of the doors quickly from site to achieve a major milestone. PacTec responded very swiftly with a bespoke design and following agreement of the design PacTec manufactured the overpaks and delivered them directly to Berkeley allowing the removal of all 10 Items from Berkeley before the key date, therefore meeting the Key Magnox Milestone. Without PacTec’s very professional and efficient response the Key Milestone would not have been met.
Many thanks to PacTec once again for your service and quick response to our urgent request!
From Ms Jill Garner – Environment, Safety and Health PacTec
