Mammoet combines its engineering heritage with deep and long-standing expertise for nuclear construction, decommissioning, shutdown and maintenance services, ensuring safe and reliable delivery.
Minimizing construction schedules
The construction of nuclear power plants requires large upfront investments. To ensure maximum returns on investment, the schedule needs to be minimized to reduce total construction time. Many different components need to be collected, transported and installed– all in a safe and timely manner. Because there are many interdependencies between construction and installation, the installation of large and heavy components is often essential. Careful coordination of the arrival and installation of these components brings power to the grid as quickly as possible.
The maintenance of nuclear facilities requires a primary focus on safety, so as to minimize exposure to contaminated materials. This adds to the complexity of change-out operations and creates a new challenge, as downtime is very costly. A smart approach to lifting and transporting contaminated components contributes to time and cost savings while meeting strict safety requirements. As many nuclear facilities were not designed with dismantling in mind, smart approaches are also needed for efficient decommissioning of these plants.
A long history of working with nuclear power plants enables Mammoet to safely and smoothly execute projects for this sector.
