Over 12 tonnes of steel have been required to complete the assembly comprising many hours of machining and fabrication time. Mark Webber, Managing Director, said “Our company has 70 years history as a tier 1 supplier to the global automotive industry, recognised as one of the most demanding industrial sectors and requiring exceptional quality standards. However, working for the Nuclear sector is a significant new capability development. The approach and engineering detail needed to complete this project has been a different level to anything we have previously experienced.”

The company has extensive in-house design, engineering and metallurgical capabilities and is accredited to BS EN 1090 execution class 4 which is the highest CE mark category for structural steel fabrications.
