Professional decommissioning, chemical removal, cleaning, neutralising, dismantling, move and load to suitable transport 

In order to ensure the plating line equipment is disassembled in a controlled manner which renders it suitable for future reuse it is a JCB prerequisite that Riley Industries carry out the decommissioning and removal work. The successful plant purchaser will contribute towards the cost of the plant removal set at a level of less than 25% of the total cost.

Riley Industries will take the role of Principle Contractor for the purposes of the project and the overall coordination of the works with JCB.

The work is within a live manufacturing environment and must not cause interference with production operations so Riley Industries will provide experienced site supervision during the execution of the works through the services of Will Green FIMF of Plating-Line-Advice. Will Green has more than 40 years experience of supplying and putting to work major plating line installations worldwide, for background information please visit www.plating-line-advice.com,

Riley Industries will provide an experienced specialist plating plant electrical and mechanical engineering team to carry out controlled plant disassembly suitable for future reassembly through the services of Jacquet Weston Engineering (www.jweltd.com)

Riley industries will provide an experienced specialist confined space entry chemical cleaning team to carry out cleaning of the equipment as it is disassembled to remove residual chemical contamination in liquid and encrusted solid form. It is envisaged that some surface staining will remain due to the nature of the chemistry and the 14 year service life exposure.

These professional services will ensure the safe and managed removal of the plating line for reuse, meeting JCB's high standards in a high volume manufacturing facility.
