  • PacTec, EPS Ltd. and the other winners of this year’s prestigious NDA Estate Supply Chain Awards were announced to a packed audience in Manchester. The awards, launched last year, recognise the contribution of suppliers to the UK’s nuclear clean-up mission and were among the highlights of yesterday’s NDA Estate Supply Chain Event. A series of categories highlighted the value of joint working, dedication to the job and innovative thinking.

Ron Gorham, Chair of the judging panel and the NDA’s Head of Supply Chain and SME Champion, said: “The standard of entries this year was incredibly high and we are immensely proud to acknowledge the role of our suppliers in supporting the timely, cost-effective decommissioning of our sites. The winners have demonstrated a creative ability to innovate, as well as to draw in and adapt technologies from outside the nuclear industry, while also working collaboratively and showing an absolute determination to overcome problems and difficulties.”

The noted highlights of PacTec’s commendation are:

  • Significant support for opening a new waste route
  • Bespoke designed packaging for contaminated equipment
  • New way of thinking about packaging
  • Assessment of fit-for-purpose needs rather than over-engineering
  • Maximised packaging efficiency
  • Alleviating demand for space in the LLW repository

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.

From Thomas Hampson – Sub-Project Manager
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.

DOOSAN

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.
