The conference focused on collaboration between members of the decommissioning industries, which, TotalDECOM says, “have never before been under such pressure to reduce costs and maximise asset productivity”.
RSK nuclear associate director, Martin Brannock, who also attended the conference, comments, “It’s clear that there are significant synergies between decommissioning in the nuclear and oil and gas sectors. The site and waste characterisation work we currently undertake within the nuclear decommissioning market has proven, over the years, to reduce decommissioning programmes and, subsequently, costs for our clients. We believe that through key collaborations, there may be opportunities to extend our site and waste characterisation services, naturally occurring radioactive material surveys and waste management services into oil and gas decommissioning.”

Successful delivery of the presentation
After the conference, Zoe commented, “I was really pleased to be asked to present a real-life case study of what we as a business are doing to address the skills gap. It gave us an opportunity to raise the profile of the company while highlighting our commitment to graduate recruitment, which many of the other companies in attendance found really informative.”
