Project Experience

Forecourt Decommissioning – Selfridges London

This is a recently completed project to de-commission the forecourt service station located to the rear of Selfridges department store in central London. The contract involved the complex removal of the under ground fuel storage tanks which were located in a concrete tank room within the Selfridges basement/car park. The concrete slab over the tank room was carefully dismantled by piecemeal and lowered onto an erected crash deck installed to specification. The basement walls were then carefully removed to allow the vessels to be cleaned, degassed and removed. Prior to the removal of the concrete a series of exploratory core holes and diamond drilling took place to ensure the concrete tank surrounds were removed and executed to plan, whilst protecting the integrity of the building. Health and Safety was of paramount importance on this project.

Heavy Plant Removal – Savoy Hotel, London

This prestigious project saw PowerContinuity Systems remove four 30 tonne standby generators and four 60 tonne boilers from the basement of London’s show case Savoy hotel. The generators and boilers were dismantled by hand into sections weighing between 1 – 3 tonnes, and from the basement area sections were moved via a hoist and beam system which was installed, tested and certificated for purpose.
Works were severely hampered by the confined space Environment and the restricted access to the building for the removal of the generator and boiler sections. Following the safe removal of this heavy plant, the basements were jet washed with an Environmental cleansing detergent with the assistance of vacuum tankers parked 30 metres from the work area. These basement areas were then refurbished to suit the future requirements of the hotel.

Conveyor Sorting System Removal – Wembley

The conveyor sorting system, some 15 metres in height and the size of a football pitch, was dismantled and removed in sections. As each section was removed the works area was handed back to the Royal Mail to allow for ongoing sorting works to continue. Strict penalty clauses were put in place as the contract required completion in just eight weeks. The project was finished on time and the site handed back to the client’s complete satisfaction.

Tank Fabrication – Bank of America, Canary Wharf

PowerContinuity Systems was invited to provide a cost and solution to clean and refurbish two 70,000 litre bulk fuel tanks in the basement of the Bank of Americas Canary Wharf Headquarters.

Following a survey of the site, that included complex MPI testing and sonic weld inspections, PowerContinuity Systems was able to offer the Client a highly competitive solution to clean, upgrade, repair and refurbish the bulk fuel system.
The project required PowerContinuity Systems to carry out re-fabrication works to the storage vessels and repair and upgrade works to the area in which they were housed. From the initial cleaning through to complex maintenance PowerContinuity Systems was able to offer a first class solution to the total satisfaction of the Client.
