GE/Alstom are world specialists in the development, design, testing and manufacture of transformers. These transformers, despite some weighing in excess of 400 tons, are very specialist pieces of equipment. GE/Alstom have been designing, building and testing these for years.
Following a review of their current site layout GE/Alstom identified a remodel of their Stafford site would allow for the construction of a large Faraday Cage which would be used for testing.
As a faraday cage on such a large scale had never been constructed, and due to the sensitive nature of the work undertaken on the site, GE/Alstom as Client also decided to act as Principal Contractor, Designer.
Due to their knowledge of both the current site operations and knowledge of the CDM Regulations 2015 Safety Advisors were appointed to as Principal Designer and produced the Pre-construction Information pack and notified the HSE of the project. Safety Advisors assisted the Principal Contractor and Lead Designer (GE/Alstom) with specialist advise in order to meet the requirements of the CDM Regulations 2015.
Safety Advisors were site based for the duration of the project and provided the GE/Alstom induction to site operatives along with assistance in the sites compliance with the CDM Regulations 2015.
Continued compliance with statutory regulations and with the CDM Regulations 2015.
