The team at GHA Livigunn have been supporting EDF across their existing fleet on numerous projects including chemical dosing, oxygen dosing, steam/condensate pipework, wash water systems and replacement of existing pipe work systems with HDPE . The team are SQEP to design seismically qualified structures and pipe work systems within the nuclear power sector too. Our team use leading FEA and Stress Analysis software to ensure the systems are operating within the requisite piping codes allowable limits.
