The four-year contract has been awarded to the Actusjoint venture as part of an intermediate level waste (ILW) framework and involves decommissioning across three waste streams - solid wastes, wet wastes and FEDER (Fuel Element Debris Enhanced Retrievals) at the Trawsfynydd site in North Wales.
Trawsfynydd site director Dave Wilson said: “This is a significant award and one which will help Magnox deliver the site into early care and maintenance - in line with our Optimised Decommissioning Plan. We look forward to working closely with the Actus jv.”
Amec nuclear VP Clive White said: “This is a significant milestone and cements the JV at the forefront of one of the key areas of focus for Magnox in the UK decommissioning programme.”
Darren James, Costain managing director, infrastructure division, said: “This is just the start of the next series of challenges similar to those the team has already successfully navigated at Trawsfynydd.”
