Shepley Engineers is the sister company of VHE and supplies specialist services in the nuclear sector. Shepley Engineers have been retained for many years in both Sellafield and at BNFL’s Springfields works, as well as completing projects at other nuclear installations including UKAEA’s Harwell site. Typical services have included design and build construction, care and maintenance work through to major decommissioning projects. VHE has undertaken major land reclamation projects involving the treatment of soil contamination caused by radium and/or chemical wastes, necessitating excavation, waste minimisation and assay in controlled environments.
