 Amec Foster Wheeler Joint Venture Awarded Sellafield Decommissioning Contract

A joint venture with Amec Foster Wheeler, Hertel (UK) Ltd. and Shepley Engineers Ltd. has been awarded a major decommissioning contract for the Sellafield nuclear site in West Cumbria.

Under the 10-year framework agreement, worth an estimated $175.7 million, the companies will help prepare the Magnox Swarf Storage Silo (MSSS) facility as it transitions to a new phase of retrieving waste from its compartments.

Due to the age of the building, asset care work is an integral part of the scope, and the joint venture will help support Sellafield Ltd.’s strategic planning and design capability.

The joint venture partners have a long relationship with the site.  Amec Foster Wheeler, Hertel and Shepley Engineers have worked there for a combined 126 years.
