During 2015 Croft was awarded, by Dounreay Site Restoration Ltd (DSRL), a number of related contracts for the supply, manufacture, testing and re-licensing of the Croft 2816 J Safkeg. The containers will be used for material arising from the site decommissioning and closure work.

Croft are very pleased to announce that the packages were successfully delivered in July, ahead of programme, enabling achievement of a significant customer milestone in support of the decommissioning of Dounreay.

Mark Johnson, Managing Director at Croft said: “These contracts were originally awarded to Croft in recognition of our ability to deliver high quality, innovative products and services on time and within budget.  I am pleased to say that in delivering ahead of schedule we have further enhanced our reputation for timely delivery.  This has taken significant dedication from the various project stakeholders, not least the Croft team, our approved supply chain, and indeed DSRL as our customer;  providing an extremely effective collaborative approach to programme management.”

“We now look forward to the Safkegs entering service, and operating effectively and safely; allowing DSRL to successfully implement and progress their site decommissioning programme and work towards achieving the agreed interim end state condition.”

Dounreay Project Director, Andy Beckwith, said: “We are delivering one of Europe’s most complex closure programmes at Dounreay, and are committed to the highest safety standards.

“We have been impressed with the delivery, quality and open relationship with Croft.  It has been a very positive contract on both sides.
