KDC is a specialist in decommissioning in the nuclear market with a successful track record of delivering decommissioning and demolition projects on the majority of nuclear licensed sites in the UK.
Our customers include Research Sites Restoration Limited (RSRL), AWE, Sellafield, Magnox, Dounreay and GE.
KDC provides turnkey solutions from initial surveys and characterisation through decontamination, dismantling and segregation, to packaging and appropriate disposal.
Decommissioning operations require a clear identification of the facility conditions followed by a definition of a precise strategy. A risk based approach is used to control the initial facility investigation and subsequent control and execution of the works.
KDC’s methodology has ensured that our nuclear decommissioning projects are executed safely, and to budget and programme.
In providing demolition services to the nuclear industry, we have pioneered many best practices for the safe demolition of complex structures within live facilities. KDC was the first demolition company to use explosive techniques for the demolition of a facility on a UK nuclear licensed site.
KDC offers a proven team with expert technical and managerial capabilities. Qualified, experienced personnel and comprehensive safe systems of work confirm KDC’s suitability for this most demanding of industries.
Experienced at working collaboratively with other organisations that share our values, we ensure that we provide the correct solution for the client. For example KDC has recently formed an alliance, Celadon (www.celadon.uk.com), to deliver the Magnox decommissioning programme.
KDC is delighted to support UKTI with various initiatives around the world including site restoration work in Japan.
