DU Construction Ltd awarded a major contract with Horizon Nuclear Power Monday, 15 April 2013 22:47
DU Construction Ltd from Holyhead has been awarded a major contract with Horizon Nuclear Power for demolition activities and associated ecological works to support the proposed new nuclear power station site at Wylfa.
The contract will see DU construction build alternative roosting sites for protected wildlife, such as bats and barn owls, followed by the removal of around fifteen unsafe and uninhabitable buildings on Horizon’s proposed site.
News of the new contract award follows a 12-month extension to the company’s existing ‘call-off’ contract with Horizon for work including maintaining and refurbishing properties, so they can be let out to local families, and improving pathways and hedgerows.
Horizon’s Head of Site Development, Alan Smith, said: “We were very pleased to see local companies bidding alongside others for this work, and are delighted that a Holyhead-based firm has been awarded the contract. This is important work to remove a number of unsafe buildings, many of which were already boarded up and in a state of disrepair before they came into our ownership at the end of 2011. Despite our best efforts since then, these buildings have suffered from numerous break-ins and vandalism meaning they now pose a health and safety risk.”
All the structures earmarked for removal are currently home to legally protected wildlife; for example, any works regarding the rehousing of bats requires a European Protected Species Licence, and approved, alternative roosting locations for protected wildlife species must be provided before any demolition work can begin.
Mark Blackwell, Director of DU Construction Ltd, said: “We are extremely pleased to have won this contract. From our previous experience of working with Horizon, we know they set very high standards, and I am very confident that our workforce is fully able to meet those standards.”
Speaking about the company’s work with Horizon to date, he added:
“As well as making use of our in-house team, we’ve also been able to sub-contract other local specialist companies where required, including mechanical and electrical firm Lloyd Morris Electrical Ltd from Amlwch (LME) and J Taylor Plumbing and Heating from Holyhead.”
“We have been able to add to our workforce of 33 full-time staff, and we’ve recently appointed a new contracts manager.”
All work will be closely monitored by the north Wales-based independent ecological specialists Cambrian Ecological Partnership to ensure strict guidelines are met during the work, which is expected to be completed by the end of June, subject to Horizon receiving the necessary permissions.
