An on-site team to support with decommissioning and beyond


With stringent regulations demanding high standards across industry, decommissioning activities need to be carried out safely, sustainably and efficiently. A multi-faceted partner that can support with a range of services is key to this.

Getting the balance right

For businesses undertaking decommissioning and decontamination activities as part of a site's development or demolition, there is a range of elements to consider. These can include various types of specialist industrial cleaning applications, deployed in order to ensure that chemical and hydrocarbon based processes are handled in a safe manner on your behalf. The wastes produced also need to be managed in a cost-effective and environmentally sustainable way.

Complex process systems need to be cleaned effectively so that they are ‘de-risked’ and safe for future handling or demolition, including vessels, pipelines, columns and heat exchangers, as well as wastewater handling and treatment systems. It's crucial to balance the successful completion of all of these elements with cost efficiency, safety and compliance, which can be especially difficult if dealing with a range of suppliers.


Work with a team that does it all

A team that looks after all of these services, whilst matching your commitment to safety, can make decommissioning, and other projects, seamless. Veolia's Industrial Site Services team are experts in a range of areas, from industrial cleaning of complex equipment using automated cleaning systems, to chemical decontamination and sub-surface infrastructure CCTV inspection.
