The UK depends on 15 nuclear reactors to generate 21% of its electricity; however, by 2025 we will see almost half of these nuclear energy plants decommissioned. In 2015, the government emphasized a new set of policies concerning the regeneration of UK energy. The UK energy industry plans to reduce its reliance on coal powered energy facilities and concentrate on delivering nuclear power, which is a lower cost to the economy. In September 2016, the UK government approved the proposed construction of two reactors at Hinkley Point C. Danny Sullivan Group has been based on the Hinkley Point C preparation site for the last number of years. Now that the UK government has given the go-ahead for the construction of Hinkley Point C, we have deployed a number of operatives to begin the construction of the sites roads and infrastructure. We have provided the following trades on the site so far; carpenters, groundworkers, slinger signaller and steelfixers. The placement of operatives on Hinkley Point C can present an array of challenges for our management team with inductions, security checks and Triple Bar Nuclear testing rendered to be a lengthy process. However, we are confident that our team based in Bridgewater, Somerset, have the skills and facilities to conduct thorough and accurate assessments on all of our candidates.
Over the last 6 years, Danny Sullivan Group has provided a wide range of competent trades to the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) Project, Mensa £734 million scheme at the Burghfield site, Reading. The objective of the project is to rebuild the UK’s nuclear weapons factory to manufacture the next generation of UK Trident warheads. Due to the high risk caliber of the project, we are required to provide vetted and Security Check approved operatives on site. With such a strict set of requirements to operate on site it can be problematic sourcing a workforce with the required set of credentials. However, at Danny Sullivan Group thanks to the experience and skills of our Induction department and Operations Managers we have placed a vast number of operatives on the AWE redevelopment project.
