Spencer Group has extensive experience in process engineering focusing on the design, operation, control, and optimisation of chemical, physical, and biological processes. Our highly experienced team has worked across a vast range of industries, such as the chemical, petrochemical, mineral processing, advanced material and biotechnological industries.

We undertake complex engineering within the nuclear industry at every stage of the project. Our team has an in-depth knowledge of the regulatory framework in the United Kingdom and associated legal obligations and requirements. This insight, combined with our in-house design and delivery capabilities and multi-disciplinary skill set, positions us well to undertake work within the nuclear sector. Our nuclear capabilities extend across, and expand upon, our existing capabilities in civil, mechanical, electrical and process engineering. Our appointment to the Magnox ILW framework further highlights our expertise in this specialist area of engineering.

Mechanical handling

Spencer is an industry leader in the field of materials and mechanical handling, including the transportation of biofuel and biomass, and has vast experience in heavy duty materials handling solutions for all industries. Our expertise extends to loading and unloading, whether by road, ship or rail, and the automatic transportation of materials using bespoke conveyors. No two projects are alike, and each presents its own set of unique challenges. For this reason, our team designs every scheme from first principles to ensure maximum performance rates for material transportation. Due to the varying nature of materials, we have developed expertise in several areas of conveying and are innovative in our approach.

Bulk storage

With strong links to our mechanical handling capabilities, we have built industry-leading credentials in material storage. We are familiar with the design and construction of many different types of storage solution, and have developed pioneering designs with state-of-the-art condition monitoring systems to fully protect the material being stored. We are also familiar with the DSEAR and ATEX regulations, and the importance of ensuring the operating requirements of the facility are fully considered.
