TotalDECOM has just released its Cross-Industry Learnings report, sponsored by Tetra Tech. It offers a fascinating look at the cost reductions and innovations made in decommissioning across sectors like oil & gas, energy and nuclear that continue to make the world a better place.
The report collates learnings thus far from various workshops held over the past year as part of the cross-industry initiative led by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, Oil & Gas Authority, National Nuclear Laboratory, and the Environment Agency. It covers topics from technical innovation to late life asset management, and more.
It has been a privilege for our team at Tetra Tech (WYG) to work collaboratively with a myriad of players like government, suppliers, operators, and academia, all of whom have engaged in and continue to share good practice. We are particularly proud of our long-standing partnerships with key players like Sellafield Ltd. and the NDA on decommissioning projects led by intense knowledge sharing. To that end, we recently seconded our energy expert, Simon Sjenitzer - Management & Surveying / Energy & Climate Change - to the NDA to share his expertise.
We encourage anyone involved in decommissioning to give the report a read. It’s a great look at how healthy collaboration can improve policies and processes for the betterment of project outcomes and societal impact.
