Long Reach Tooling Solutions

Supporting Decommissioning of the PFSP at Sellafield to provide a quick, efficient and cost-effective response to the challenges faced across the whole of the Pile Fuel Storage Pond (PFSP) decommissioning programme for Sellafield Ltd.

PFSP had previously followed the traditional route of design, build and then trialling of bespoke tooling. In order to progress projects cost effectively and speedily, the Sellafield project team looked for partners in the supply chain with the required experience, expertise and facilities to supply and test “commercial off-the-shelf” (COTS) or modified proprietary equipment. This COTS approach minimises the need for multiple, expensive and lengthy design and manufacturing tasks associated with bespoke equipment.
