Abi Pickering from Cockermouth School and Connor Nuttall from Millom School were tasked with a real life engineering project as part of their Dream Placement at James Fisher Nuclear’s (JFN) Egremont site.
The budding engineers were given the challenge of developing a solution to remove a set of large steel deflector plates from inside a storage silo, with limited access and a host of other technical challenges.
Abi said “This was a good challenge for us. Engineering is a possible future option for me so it was really useful to see what happens in a real life engineering project.”
Ben Pekarek, Engineering manager for JFN said “The student’s task was based on a project successfully delivered by JFN, so it was great to see that Abi and Connor developed a very similar engineering solution to the one we actually deployed on site for our client. Dream Placement has, I think, proved itself again as a valuable learning experience for the students.”
