Specialist decommissioning engineering consultancy the RVA Group has launched a new service as the number of industrial and process site closures around the world continues to rise.

RVA Group decommissioning service The RVA Group has worked on projects in the chemical and other industries for almost 30 years

Having successfully delivered more than 850 decommissioning, decontamination, demolition and dismantling (DDDD) projects all over the world, the United Kingdom-based firm says it has identified a gap in the market when it comes to one of the earliest phases of preparing a site to be mothballed or removed.

According to RVA, asset owners commonly use internal resources to handle initial decommissioning works – often due to the fact they do not consider alternative approaches.

However, global industry standards such as the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations, state that it is best practice – and the law in the UK – for decommissioning to fall within this remit.

“Nobody knows an asset or site better than the operator who has run it for several years,” said RVA Group managing director Richard Vann.

“So, when the owner calls time on its operational life, it would be unwise to overlook the depth and value of process and plant-specific knowledge that such individuals could bring to the table during a decommissioning project.”

The RVA Group has worked on projects in the global chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, power, energy, oil, gas and heavy manufacturing industries since 1992 and became part of the Czech utility EPH in 2017.
