 Westinghouse Picked for Nuclear Decommissioning Activities in the UK

Sellafield Ltd. picked Westinghouse Electric as part of two consortiums to perform separate decommissioning activities at the Sellafield site in the U.K.
Both agreements are 10-year frameworks: one as part of a six-company consortium with Cumbria Nuclear Solutions Ltd. for the Decommissioning Delivery Partnership (DDP) Lot 1. The second as part of a three-company consortium with The Decommissioning Alliance (TDA) for DDP Lot 2. The Cumbria group also includes James Fisher Nuclear, React Engineering, Shepley Engineers, Jacobs Stobbarts and WYG Engineering. The TDA consortium consists of Energy Solutions and Jacobs.
The contracts build upon Westinghouse’s previous work on reducing fire risk and hazard at the First Generation Magnox Storage Pond. The Sellafield site is where decommissioning waste, spent nuclear fuel and reprocessed fuel is stored on behalf of the U.K.’s Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.
