Bechtel and GE Hitachi pursue nuclear decommissioning work

24 Mar 17 Bechtel and GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy have teamed up to target nuclear decommissioning projects in Germany and Sweden.

The alliance will offer a full range of decommissioning services including pre-shutdown planning, licensing, project development and management, dismantling, demolition, waste handling and site closeout.

“Our companies are committed to safety and efficiency across the entire nuclear plant lifecycle,” said James Taylor, general manager of Bechtel’s Environmental business line. “Bechtel has performed work from design to dismantlement for more than 150 nuclear plants over the last 60 years. This experience will be critical to delivering quality as Germany and Sweden move forward.”

Lance Hall, GEH executive vice president for Nuclear Services, added: “The alliance of GEH and Bechtel provides customers a complete offering of decommissioning services that draws upon the comprehensive experience, resources and project management expertise of both companies. As plants in Germany and Sweden shut down, this alliance will support customers through the end of the nuclear power plant life cycle.”
