With 2021 now well underway, decommissioning activities at the Oyster Creek and Pilgrim decommissioning sites continue to progress, a testament to the strong focus on safety, precision and innovation at both locations.
The year 2020 marked many milestones for Holtec, in spite of a global pandemic that has challenged us all.
In spite of the odds against us, we weathered the pandemic remarkably well, adapting to remote work in a very short time after the virus intensified last March.

Holtec’s fleet approach to decommissioning allows sites to share resources, multiply experience and expertise, and learn from each other’s best practices. Working together as a fleet is spelling success for the Pilgrim and Oyster Creek Decommissioning Sites.
