Poundfield Precast Ltd, the Suffolk-based market-leading manufacturer of quality precast concrete, has announced another contract win to supply the nuclear industry – the third in the last year.
The company, which employs over 70 staff, has built its impressive market share and made its reputation on the back of the quality of its patented accredited precast concrete retaining wall and beam and block floor products and its service levels and reliability to clients.
From next month, Poundfield will be supplying a number of Alfablocs to I D Corcoran who are currently working at Sizewell A on the decommissioning of the power station project.
The interlocking Alfablocs will be used as a shield wall surrounding the active waste facility building as a means to reduce ‘shine’ or radiation. The product is typically used for the retention and storage of bulk materials, but offers versatility for use in many other sectors as well.
The Sizewell A win comes hot on the heels of two major contracts to supply Alfabloc’s to the Hinckley Point C nuclear power station, which is currently being constructed.
In spring of last year Poundfield was commissioned to supply 80 Alfabloc units, followed by another 70 in the autumn to the Somerset station, which uses the same technology as that for the prospective station at Sizewell C.
In both cases the products have been used as onsite storage for materials, aggregates and bulk storage for the groundworks being carried out on the site.
According to Matt Moss, Commercial Director at Poundfield, “to win contracts of this scale meant we had to have every part of our production process just right. We have proven that we are fit for the particularly high standards required of any nuclear-related contract and that we have the right commercial relationships in place in each of the respective supply chains.”
“Poundfield is a growing company with a very strong presence in delivering great products and solutions to the sea defence, waste and agricultural sectors. These three nuclear wins mean that we have an increasingly diverse and successful business model” added Matt.
