This month, CSC Services successfully completes the 2017 Concrete Spalling Remediation Programme at Hinkley Point B Power Station for client EDF Energy.
Over ten tonne of specialist repair mortars and structural strengthening products have been used to rectify the degradation of reinforced concrete at various areas across the station.
A combination of environmental exposure, water ingress and the age of the station building had caused spalling in areas including the flask bay and turbine hall.
Maintaining ongoing nuclear safety and plant reliability were the key objectives driving the programme of work which began in April. The repair work will significantly expand the durability of structures, enabling their original design life to be achieved.
A range of protective coatings have been used to protect the structures from moisture intrusion and further corrosion, reducing the need for ongoing maintenance work for the life of the station.
Speaking about the work, Paul Milton, Project Manager at Hinkley Point B Power Station said:
“All work was completed to a high professional standard. CSC Services employ high quality trades personnel who take pride in the work, and the team are always on hand to give advice and come up with innovative solutions to help solve problems with cost cutting ideas. I have found CSC Services to be an extremely professional company who have helped me ensure my projects have been delivered safely, on time to the agreed costs. I am looking forward to working with them again on future projects.”
With over 20 years of experience in providing repair services and protective coatings, CSC Services offer a safe, reliable and quality service that is always guaranteed.
All of CSC Services’ operatives are fully trained in the repair and protection of reinforced concrete structures in accordance with BSEN1504.
