According to energy industry comptrollers, the average 6 foot scaffold costs $6,000 with each work order.
The X-Deck costs more in material goods initially but is proven to reduce labor costs by 80%.  Thus paying for itself after only two uses.  Therefore, you will be saving money for every subsequent use.

Kenny in a pre-outage speech had the following to say about the X-Deck work platform:

“Ladies and Gentlemen, at this outage we are going to set a record.  Our goal is to reduce the outage days from 24 days to 22 days.  One of the reasons I know we can accomplish this goal is because of this SafeTec X-Deck platform like the one I am standing on.  These stands will allow us to do our jobs safer and more efficiently.  Reducing DOSE time and allowing us to complete this project at least two day early.  We have our SafeTec representatives standing by to demonstrate the operation of these platforms. I encourage each and every one of you to stop by and let our SafeTec representative show you the proper operation of these units.  I am sure you will see how valuable these platforms will be in reaching our goals.”

Surry Nuclear is a division of Dominion located in Virginia.

We thank Kenny and his leadership team for their support of the X-Deck work platforms.
