Red Leaf Group worked with a team of contractors to design a 24-hour operation that could achieve the complete safe removal of all equipment in the most effective manner and smallest timeframe. Before the start of works, a detailed decommissioning risk assessment and method statement was formulated to ensure efficiency, pre-empt any complications and maintain Health and Safety as a priority. Red Leaf Group’s highly skilled operatives were then on site to dismantle, segment and decontaminate where required. Using specialist lifting experience and a full range of equipment, including spider cranes, winches and mobile platforms, we were able to effectively take care of the removal of all equipment. All cabling, steel, transformers and coolers towers were lifted, loaded and transported to facilities for recycling.

The objective of the project was achieved, with the whole process going smoothly and staying on schedule. Day to day operations on site were impacted minimally and the client was pleased with the outcome.
