Cammell Laird CEO John Syvret CBE said the company is now making â€˜serious progressâ€™ in its campaign to position itself as one of the prime locations in Britain for the manufacture of modules for the multi-billion pound new build and decommissioning programmes.
The current spend on the UKâ€™s Â£70bn decommissioning programme is around Â£3bn a year and the new nuclear power plant programme is estimated to be worth Â£100bn.
â€œJohn brings a wealth of experience and expertise to our team,â€ he
said. â€œHis knowledge will help us forge closer links with the nuclear industry enabling us to present innovative solutions to complex engineering challenges.
â€œIn terms of our investment we have spent more than Â£1.5m in renovating one of the large workshops near the construction hall.
The refurbishment has seen six cranes overhauled and a new roof, floor, electrics and lighting installed.
It will provide a world-class facility to test and assemble modules and rigs for our nuclear clients.â€
said the workshop investment and appointment of Mr Eldridge demonstrated Cammell Lairdâ€™s ability and desire to grow in the nuclear sector.
â€œThis is a hugely exciting time to be at Cammell Laird
and I am absolutely delighted to join John Syvret
and the team here,â€ he
said. â€œPower plant vendors want to broaden their supply chain and they want suppliers like Cammell Laird to find efficient, adaptable and flexible solutions.
Cammell Laird CEO John Syvret CBE said the first anniversary marked â€˜a period of significant progressâ€™ and added that the company would now be redoubling its efforts to deliver the best possible service to the RFA.
emphasized that the RFA contract plays a key role in the companyâ€™s rapid growth in the commercial marine, off shore wind and civil nuclear markets.
said that the stringent Health and Safety, project management and quality requirements demanded by the MoD helped significantly in other markets.
Cammell Laird chief executive John Syvret CBE said the company is absolutely delighted to welcome the Fort Victoria to Merseyside.
â€œThis is a very big moment in the history of the cluster contract to begin a refit of this size, complexity and magnitude,â€ he
said. â€œThe entire company is relishing the prospect of starting such an important contract.
Cammell Laird chief executive John Syvret said 32 apprentices have graduated into full time employment at the firm over the last four years reflecting the investment the company is making in young people.
â€œOur core focus now is to ensure our workforce has transferable engineering skills,â€ he
said. â€œThe apprentices are fundamental to this.
