Sellafield is a massive site with many different contracts ongoing at the same time, so PPS continually need to transfer plant and materials between job-sites. It is essential that they know where all their assets are at any given time, particularly in areas of the site that are deemed to be higher risk. In such cases, all tools and materials must be issued with a Nuclear Clearance Exemption certificate confirming that these assets are safe to leave the area.
PPS had previously used a paper based system to track and trace their assets however these records were not always kept up to date and were not fully visible across the business. PPS Electrical Ltd. were the first company in the UK to adopt the Hilti ON!Track system and have seen many benefits.
With the ON!Track system, PPS know exactly where all their assets are and can attach the certificates electronically in the system so they have full visibility of where the plant is and whether it is safe to be transferred.
PPS Electrical Ltd. have worked with Hilti for over 10 years and have built a strong partnership using Hilti for 90% of their tools.
Steven Fox, Quality and Compliance Manager for PPS advised, “We have been working closely with the Hilti Project Manager, using more and more of the Hilti product on the Sellafield site. Due to this partnership, we were interested in trialling the ON!Track system with a view to rolling it out to the full company."
