Sub-Contracts Lead on PFCS
Bechtel helps clients deliver projects of purpose that create a lasting positive legacy globally. These projects create jobs and grow economies; improve the resiliency of the world's infrastructure; tie communities to resources and opportunities; get us closer to net zero; tackle critical environmental challenges to protect people and the planet; and accelerate progress to make the world a cleaner, greener, safer place.
We are currently recruiting for long term career professionals, with an initial assignment supporting Bechtel Cavendish Nuclear Solutions (BCNS). BCNS is a joint venture between Bechtel Ltd and Cavendish Nuclear Ltd, working since 2011 to deliver the Pile Fuel Cladding Silo Retrievals (PFCS) Project alongside and on behalf of the client, Sellafield Ltd.
The Pile Fuel Cladding Silo is a Legacy and Pond Silo facility. As part of the client’s hazard and risk reduction programme, the PFCS project was tasked to successfully deliver plant and equipment capable of accessing the historic waste, removing it, and transferring it into containers for safe interim storage. Using a ‘fit for purpose’ model and operating in close collaboration with Sellafield Ltd, a solution was delivered that met the functional requirements by the most efficient means.
The first phase of the project (known as Retrievals Access Penetrations and Silo Doors) prepared the silo for retrievals by cutting access holes into each compartment and sealing them with high-precision doors. This was delivered on time, within cost and to exacting quality standards. The second phase (known as Early Retrievals) designed, fabricated, installed on the silo, and commissioned the first set of retrievals equipment, ready to begin retrieving waste. In addition, a second retrievals plant was produced to act as a full-scale training rig, based at Rosyth Dockyard where it was installed on a mock-up of the silo. The Early Retrievals project was successfully completed in June 2019; a staggering 3 years ahead of the initial schedule and with a cost saving in excess of £400m against the previous scheme.
The contract is now in the third phase (Full Retrievals), which involves further modifications to the silo to enable the eventual installation of the second set of retrievals equipment (currently sitting at Rosyth), along with various productivity enhancements to the existing equipment. This work is likely to continue at least into 2023.
The role will require regular travel to the Sellafield site so candidates would preferably be based in the Northwest/Cumbria area. Candidates must be able to obtain SC - security clearance.
To achieve this goal individuals from Bechtel, bring their experience and expertise to the role while working within the client’s organisation as part of an integrated team. We pull to supporting the client’s goals while promoting our values of fairness, diversity, inclusion, trust and collaboration guided by our Vision, Values and Covenants.
