GE Hitachi Forges Alliance For European Nuclear Decommissioning Services

By Vicky Janowski, posted Mar 22, 2017
GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy and Bechtel will partner up to pursue decommissioning and dismantlement services for nuclear power plants in Germany and Sweden, officials announced Wednesday.
The alliance between Wilmington-based GE Hitachi and Bechtel, a global engineering, construction and project management company based in the U.S., “will provide a full range of decommissioning services including pre-shutdown planning, licensing, project development and management, dismantling, demolition, waste handling, and site closeout,” a news release stated.
“As plants in Germany and Sweden shut down, this alliance will support customers through the end of the nuclear power plant lifecycle,” said Lance Hall, executive vice president of nuclear services for GE Hitachi.
Both companies have extensive experience in nuclear decommissioning work, including reactor internals replacement projects in Japan for GE Hitachi, which also this year was awarded a three-year contract to dismantle two reactors at the Oskarshamn Nuclear Power Plant in Sweden.
Bechtel also has worked for more than three decades in cleanup, decommissioning, remediation and closure at more than 500 contaminated sites worldwide, including U.S. Department of Energy sites in five states and at the Sellafield Site in the U.K., officials said.
“Bechtel has performed work from design to dismantlement for more than 150 nuclear plants over the last 60 years,” said James Taylor, general manager of Bechtel’s Environmental business line. “This experience will be critical to delivering quality as Germany and Sweden move forward.”
