TAUNTON-based Cleaning Solutions UK Ltd has been selected to supply Hinkley Point B Nuclear Power Station with seven new Numatic battery powered Scrubber drier machines through a partnership with Equans.

Equans provides mission critical engineering, technical and safety services to all Britain’s active nuclear power stations.

As part of its partnership with EDF, the company provides civil, mechanical and electrical project services along with total facilities management, maintenance and emergency response equipment to the nuclear fleet.

Cleaning Solutions UK Ltd managing director Richard Williams said: “We are absolutely delighted to be working in conjunction with Scott Gammon, soft services manager of Equans on the supply of these Numatic machines and batteries.

"As a small business this is a huge deal for us, and we are extremely grateful to Scott for putting his faith in our business.

"We pride ourselves that the team’s technical knowledge about our range of products is second to none, giving our customers total peace of mind and clarity when they buy from us.

"This major purchase also demonstrates that what we are doing as a business within the industry isn't going unnoticed."

Mr Gammon said: “This is a big deal for us at site - since moving into defuelling after generating for 47 years we are at a stage where we have a legacy to safely defuel and decommission the station.

"Site maintenance is still very important at Hinkley Point B and having the right tools to do that is essential.

"Cleaning Solutions UK Ltd have provided us with equipment and supplies for a number of years and this large investment in equipment is something we can all be proud of.

"Given that we have had very good relations with Cleaning Solutions UK who provided the station with high grade chemicals throughout the pandemic, we have every confidence in them delivering a new investment to the station as we continue to support the local economy and business.”

Cleaning Solutions UK’s head of sales William Pettitt said: “It has been an absolute pleasure working with Scott on this and other projects, and we are thrilled that we are supplying Numatic machines that are manufactured just down the road in Chard.

"This deal truly is a great advertisement for businesses in Somerset working together."
