PROJECT: Removal of contaminated Floor

Client: RSRL

Location: Winfrith

Project Length: 7 Months

Project Overview

Track Sawing

BD Nuclear won a contract to size reduce and remove a heavily contaminated floor.

The floor consisted of a slab 16m x 16m and 400mm thick. The floor was cut into 1m x 1m sections. The substrate beneath the slab was heavily contaminated. To overcome this problem we used full water control and cut the last 20mm dry to limit the amount of water being introduced to the ground.

As part of the work scope BD Nuclear also designed and fabricated lifting brackets. These lifting brackets were fitted to the sections. Every bracket was pull tested before lifting and the sections were wrapped in bags for disposal.

All waste water was recycled and a closed loop water cooling system was used.
