Composite repair on a nuclear power station 

March 2022Energy CompanyNuclear Power Station, England

ICR’s UK Onshore team was asked to complete a Technowrap™ composite repair scope at a nuclear power station site in England where replacement was not practicable due to severe access restrictions and isolation issues. 


Although typical composite resin systems within a confined space area require breathing apparatus, ICR was able to use its bespoke resin system and installed a Technowrap™ engineered composite repair to eliminate the requirement. Following visual inspection and risk assessment, the area was grit blasted with the pipework remaining in service at all stages. The repair was implemented and signed off within a 3-day window.

Results & Benefits

  • 20 year design life achieved 
  • Has led to several further scope enquiries from client
